Family Bird Count

Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10:00am-12:30pm

WildCare Family Adventures and Richardson Bay Audubon team up for this annual favorite event celebrating birds, families and nature! This FREE event gives aspiring young birders and outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to contribute to conservation by collecting data while they learn about our local birds with the help of naturalists and volunteer birders. Groups work together and look for as many numbers of various species as they can, and tally up the results. No prior birding experience necessary! Binoculars and scopes will be provided or bring your own. Refreshments will be served.

DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101, exit at Bellam Blvd and head east. Turn left onto Kerner Blvd and right onto Canal Street. We will meet at Pickleweed (Albert J. Boro) Community Center, located at 50 Canal Street in San Rafael.

Earth Day at Creekside Park in Greenbrae

Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 9:30am-12:30pm

In celebration of Earth Day, WildCare Family Adventures will join Kirk Schroeder from Marin County Parks for a beautification and habitat restoration project around the Creekside Marsh and Corte Madera Creek, followed by an easy walk along the creek. We’ll be looking for the endangered and elusive Ridgeway Clapper Rail, which has been spotted around the marsh. We’ll look for other aquatic birds, such as Black-necked Stilts, American Avocets, Great Egrets and Buffleheads. If we are lucky, we may even spot a River Otter! We will end the day at the Hal Brown playground for lunch and a little play time for the children. This is a great spot for appreciating local wildlife while helping the earth.
DIRECTIONS: From 101, take Sir Francis Drake Blvd toward San Anselmo. Turn onto Bon Air Road. We will meet at the pedestrian bridge across from Marin General Hospital.
