Bird and Plant ID Walk at Lake Cunningham Park (San Jose) 
Sunday, March 24, 2019 09:00am
 
Contact Meetup (“California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter”)

As spring begins, join us for a beginner’s bird and plant identification walk through Lake Cunningham Park. This park is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds and its native garden draws many birds due to its habitat value. On this walk, Vicki Silvas-Young will show you how to identify the common birds of our area, as well as the native plants they depend on for food, shelter, and nesting places.

The distance is 4 miles round-trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, your bird and plant list, and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Directions: Meet at the Marina building at 9:00 am. The Marina is on the western shore of the lake, next to Raging Waters, at the opposite end of the park from the main entrance on White Road. Parking fee is $6. In Google Maps, search for “Lake Cunningham Marina” to be directed to the Marina.

Space is limited. Please RSVP via Meetup (“California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter”) to reserve your spot. Cosponsored by CNPS, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.
