Valle Vista EBMUD Watershed (Moraga)
Saturday, August 20, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Birding in the Moraga area on level trails and fire roads owned by East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD). This area features a variety of habitats: chaparral and scrub, grassland, pine-oak woodland, marsh, and the top of the reservoir. Likely birds include raptors, sparrows, California Thrasher, nuthatches, wrens, and the shy Wood Ducks. We will explore on hard-packed trails, with some gentle up and down hill. There is a pit toilet at the starting point, but no drinking water.
Leader: Madeline Brane, MBRANE@SBCGLOBAL.NET, cell (650) 235-5325, and Johan Langewis, JLANGEWIS@SBCGLOBAL.NET, cell (510) 541-1353
