Senior Stroll: Birds at Las Gallinas

The Las Gallinas water treatment facility ponds are fabulous places to get close looks at various waterfowl. There are usually plenty of hawks hunting for rodents and other prey in the surrounding field. We'll follow the wide, level fire road that runs along with the ponds.

Please remember to bring binoculars if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. 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.

No registration is required. For more information, contact Naturalist Shannon at

Directions: Meet at the Las Gallinas Sanitary District water treatment ponds in San Rafael (310 Smith Ranch Road). From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for Smith Ranch Rd east approximately 0.7 miles. Drive over the railroad tracks and immediately turn left to stay on Smith Ranch Rd. (If you go through the park entrance, you have gone too far). Follow Smith Ranch Rd 0.8 miles to treatment facility. Park on the left.
