Bird Walk is $5 for Garden & MCAS members/$10 non-members. No reservations are needed. For more information contact education@slobg.org.

Eric has been birding since his teen years, and has enjoyed searching out birds from arctic Alaska to Costa Rica. 

Jay’s interest in birds began with shorebird censuses in Elkhorn Slough in the 1970s and later expanded during trips to southeast Alaska, the Galapagos Islands, and Australia. He has lived on the Central Coast for over 35 years.
