Abbott’s Lagoon (Pt. Reyes)

August 21 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

We will bird the coastal scrub, lagoons, and ocean of this section of Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County. We hope to find migrant shorebirds and resident Snowy Plovers. Abbott’s Lagoon has historically been good for Baird’s Sandpiper and we may get lucky. Bring scope, liquids, lunch.  Plan on walking 4 miles round-trip; it’s relatively flat but the trail consists partially of sand. Dress in layers and prepare for wind.

This trip is free but advance registration is required. The exact meeting spot and directions will be provided to registered participants. Registration will open on August 7  and close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 19.  If you try to sign up before August 1,  you’ll get a message that registration is closed.

Leader: Rusty Scalf, 510-495-5837, rscalf@sonic.net
