CANCELLED - Birds at Stafford Lake

This reservoir on upper Novato Creek is a great place to see a variety of winter birds. We’ll stroll along the shore and enjoy flocks of ducks, while keeping an eye open for raptors overhead. The trees here are always a good place to see a variety of woodpeckers, and there are usually plenty of mixed flocks of songbirds passing through as well. Total miles: 2. There is little elevation change but we’ll be walking off-trail on uneven ground.

Remember to bring a lunch and binoculars if you have them. No pets (except service dogs) are allowed.

Be sure to check the calendar or call (415) 473-6086 two hours before the event to confirm the status. Factors including illness, adverse weather, or Air Quality Index (AQI) that exceeds 150 on may cancel events.
