Event description

Description

Do you love being outdoors? Do you want to deepen your appreciation of nature by learning the names of birds and plants around you? As fall begins, join us for a beginner’s bird and plant identification walk through Lake Cunningham Park. Lake Cunningham is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds, and its native garden provides valuable habitat for many local birds. On this walk, Docent Vicki 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.

The distance is 4 miles round-trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, your bird and plant list, and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Directions: Meet at the Marina building at 9:00 am. The Marina is on the western shore of the lake, next to Raging Waters, at the opposite end of the park from the main entrance on White Road. In Google Maps, search for “Lake Cunningham Marina” to be directed to the Marina. Parking fee is $6.

This walk is organized jointly by the California Native Plant Society, the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority. It is open to all, but space is limited!
