West County Wastewater Loop (Richmond)

September 12 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

September is a great time to bird the West County Wastewater District–Landfill Loop Trail.  There will be a mixture of waterfowl and shorebirds along with the opportunity to practice gull identification.  This is also a good location for finding vagrant fall migrants. The trip will consist of a 3 mile hike along a flat sandy/dirt road beginning and ending at the parking lot where there are portapotties.  A scope is recommended, provided you don’t mind carrying it around the loop.

Leader: Robert Raffel, raffelrobert@gmail.com (925) 788-7568

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

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

  • Walk is limited to 25 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.
