Session #1: First Day of Summer
Cost: Free class, parking fee is $6
Description: This walk is organized jointly by California Native Plant Society, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and Open Space Authority, and is open to all.
Do you love being outdoors? Do you want to deepen your appreciation of nature by learning the names of birds and plants around you? At the onset of summer, join us for a beginner's bird and plant identification walk through Lake Cunningham Park. This park is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds, and its native garden is visited by many birds due to its habitat value. On this walk, Vicki Silvas-Young will show you how to identify the common birds of our area, as well as the native plants they depend on for food, shelter, and nesting places. Trip distance is four miles round-trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, bird and plant list, binoculars, and walking shoes.
Space is limited! RSVP through meetup.com ("California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter" or "Open Space Appreciation Hiking Enthusiasts") to reserve your spot.
