Fort Mason (SF)

June 19 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

June’s walk comes after migration has ended, so our focus will be on nesting birds and year round residents. Likely nesters include Western Bluebirds, Violet Green Swallows, Pigeon Guillemots, Bushtits, Song Sparrows, White-Crowned Sparrows and Red-Masked Parakeets, so we’ll be looking for fledglings.  We’ll also check out the Black Point Battery, and scan Aquatic Park for water birds.

Leader: David Assmann, david_assmann@yahoo.com

This trip is free but advance registration is required. Registration will open two weeks before the trip and close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 16. Directions for registered participants are below.

Please note the public health guidelines for this trip, as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • Walk is limited to 15 participants plus the leaders. There will not be a waiting list.

  • Participants must register online and acknowledge acceptance of our liability waiver. Each person must register separately. No “drop ins,” please.

Thank you for your flexibility in helping us ensure that everyone remains healthy! Because we have to limit the size of trips, please do not sign up unless you are committed to attending.


Directions: Meet in front of the Community Garden to explore several different habitats in this compact part of GGNRA.  Restroom in meadow, ample parking if there is no race on the waterfront (also easily accessible by transit). Most of the walk is flat, on mostly paved walkways, but there is one short steep descent to the waterfront. Benches are in the garden for resting if needed. Heavy rain cancels.
