Fabulous March Birdathon events available


Hi All,

We still have a few spots available for three of our great March Birdathon fund-raising events.
We have two wonderful "behind the scenes" trips...to the Oakland Zoo and to the California Academy of Science.
As well as an opportunity to go birding and eat chocolate all on the same day in Alameda.
The event descriptions and registration links are below.

Birdathon will run into early May.
Here's a link to the trip schedule if you'd like to see more great events.

Begin the day at the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary in Alameda. The shoreline will be packed with overwintering shorebirds! The overlook and trail provide close access to identify and observe these birds, along with ducks, pelicans, egrets, and maybe a flyover of a peregrine, or kingfisher! Bring a bag lunch to enjoy on the beach if weather permits. At the host house, we’ll discover some of the finest luxury chocolates in the world, many made locally. Choose your favorites while you learn about rainforest ecosystems, conservation issues, and how our love of chocolate impacts wildlife. Limit 15 people.

Good birding,
