Blake Garden (Kensington)

Tuesday, July 12, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Summer has arrived and the Blake Garden is full of fledglings. Come observe the interactions between parents and fledglings around the garden. On Tuesday we’ll continue with bird phenology in Blake Garden on our monthly walk. We’ll be looking for the summer resident birds and listen to their chatter. Some species may even be trying for a second brood.

The Blake Garden is a public garden and landscape laboratory. In 1957, the Blake Estate was deeded to the UC Berkeley’s Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning. With many horticulture and native plants and 80+ documented bird species, the garden is a model for many sustainable practices such as composting, rainwater-catchment and apiculture. One of the gardeners will give a brief introduction and history of the Blake Garden.

The dirt and gravel trails go up and down hill and are well maintained. Restrooms are present on the premises. Please bring binoculars if you have them. Scopes are also welcome. We will bird for approximately two to three hours.

Leader: Sonja Raub, scraub@gmail.com, cell (510) 919 7132 and Jan Ambrosini
