Garin Park (Hayward)
July 31 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
We’ll enter Garin Regional Park in Hayward through a little known-entrance—so little known that it doesn’t even appear on the East Bay Regional Parks District’s map of the park. This makes it a perfect place to avoid crowds while birding. Even though the bird populations are past their spring peak, there are still lots of birds to see. It’s a great place to experience raptors and woodpeckers.
We will walk 3.1 miles along paved and unpaved trails. The paths are slightly hilly, but worth the effort for the birds and the views. There are benches at several points along the route and one well-maintained pit toilet. Bring binoculars, water, sunscreen and hat. Bring spare binoculars, if you are willing to lend them. Beginners and advanced birders alike are encouraged to join us.
This trip is free but advance registration is required. The exact location and directions will be provided to registered participants. Registration will open on July 17 and close at 4 p.m. on July 29.
