Arrowhead Marsh (Oakland)
Friday, December 31, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Prepare for the new year by immersing yourself into the wonder of our birdy neighbors. We will have a guests Dr. Concha Saucedo do a land blessing and Susana Renaud lead a short nature mindfulness practice.
All are welcome but LGBTQ+ and BIPOC folks are especially invited to a participatory, accessible field trip. We all benefit when anyone shares their observations, knowledge and enthusiasm. There should be large birds that can be seen without binoculars, including migratory and winter water birds. We will likely discover land birds by sight and ear too. Binoculars help, so let the leader know in advance if you’d like a loaner pair. Trip will be 1-2 miles on flat paved terrain with some benches, water fountains and bathrooms.
