Fort Mason (San Francisco)

November 21 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Meet in front of the Community Garden to explore several different habitats in this compact part of GGNRA. Although migration is over, there are a number of wintering species at Fort Mason, and the species count in November can be as high as 50.  We’ll explore Aquatic Park for returning ducks, grebes and loons.  We’ll look for shorebirds on the pier. The garden and the Battery should have a variety of land birds, including warblers, thrushes, woodpeckers and sparrows.

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.

Leader: David Assmann, david_assmann@yahoo.com
