Based on recommendations from National Audubon, we have decided to cancel all in person activities through April due to the threats posed by COVID-19.

Join leaders Jeanette Stone and Freddy Howell for this bird walk around Atascadero Lake which will be approximately one mile long, at a slow to moderate pace, depending on where and how often we’re seeing birds.  The terrain is gentle, over flat surfaces. Best suited for beginners, but all experience levels welcome. Expect to see numerous species in a variety of habitats, with likely sightings of: Red-shouldered Hawk, California Quail, California Scrub-Jay, Woodpeckers, Western Bluebird and a variety of Waterfowl. 

RSVP Required! Trip is limited to 17 participants.
