CANCELLED - Birds at Stafford Lake

This reservoir on upper Novato Creek is a great place to see a variety of winter birds. We will stroll along the shore and enjoy flocks of ducks and keep 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 songbirds passing through as well.

Remember to bring a lunch and binoculars if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Park entrance fee is waived for participants. Adverse weather may cancel. Check the calendar or call (415) 473-6086 after 8 am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if canceled.

Registration is not required. For more information contact, Naturalist Shannon at
