At the onset of summer, 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 will be 4 miles round trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, your plant and bird lists and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Parking fee is $6.
Reservations are required. Please RSVP at www.meetup.com (“California Native Plant Society – Santa Clara Valley Chapter”) or through the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority (OSA) Events page www.openspaceauthority.org/visitors/events.html. This plant walk is jointly organized by CNPS, OSA and Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society.
Lake Cunningham Park is located at 2305 S. White Road, San Jose. We’ll meet at the Marina building at 9am. See directions at the Meetup or OSA listing.
