Elsie Roemer to Arrowhead Marsh Bike ride

Monday, December 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Winter high tides are a good time to see rails, and if there has been enough rain, lots of ducks and shorebirds in the seasonal wetlands on this ~12 mile roundtrip bike ride visiting Elsie Roemer and Arrowhead marsh from the Frutivale Bart station.

Leader: Kathy Jarrett, (510) 547-1233, kathy_jarrett@yahoo.com
