Vollmer Peak (Berkeley/Orinda)

June 11 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Migrating warblers have passed through by now and birds have settled down to nesting, but we can still look for resident and seasonal species, eg Grosbeak, nuthatches, Wilson’s Warblers, California Thrasher and others in Vollmer Peak’s conifer, woodland and scrub habits.  We’ll walk about 1.5 miles  on dirt and gravel trails (Vollmer peak and Seaview) with a rise of about 1,500 ft.  Portapotty at parking lot; no benches along the way.

Bring binoculars and dress/accessorize accordingly (hats and water for sun and heat). 

Leader: Cathy Bleier, 510-414-5719 (cell); csbleier@sbcglobal.net

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 9.  Directions for registered participants are below.

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

  • 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.
