Birding Walks

Anna Jean Cummings Park - July 9 & 25, 8-10 AM
Pinto Lake County Park - July 15 & 30, 8-10 AM


Anna Jean Cummings Park, Old San Jose Rd, Soquel (map) - We will walk the flat loop trail around the perimeter of the Coastal Prairie habitat and riparian area. This is a great time to start finding some early migrants mixed within our wintering birds. In addition, we hope to share some of the amazing park history with you. Directions: Meet at 8 AM (when the gate opens) at the very top parking lot, past the soccer fields, at the base of the big hill.    

Pinto Lake County Park, 757 Green Valley Rd, Watsonville, CA 95076, USA (map) - Meet at 8:00 AM at the north end of Pinto Lake on the County Park side. We’ll assemble in the first parking lot area and then walk down the path to the lakeshore and boardwalk. Plan for a couple hours of relatively easy walking.
