Field Trip - Oso Flaco, Saturday August 3rd

Meet leader Cheryl Lish, of the Resource Department of Oceano Dunes District, California State Parks at 8AM on Saturday, August 3rd at the Oso Flaco parking lot. We will walk along the boardwalk trail through riparian, lake, dune scrub, and shoreline habitats to enjoy the beautiful scenery and look for summer birds.

With luck we will see adult and juvenile Least Terns foraging at the lake and see Snowy Plovers at the beach. We may also be able to practice identifying swallows perched close to the boardwalk. Children are welcome. We will walk to the beach overlook and a short way on the beach (total of about 1-2 miles easy level walking) and finish before noon.

Parking lot fee is $5 and there is limited parking outside the gate for free. No RSVP needed.
