Beginner’s Bird and Plant Identification Walk at Lake Cunningham Park. Joint event with the California Native Plant Society and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.
As Winter sets in, join us for the fourth walk of its kind this year: a beginner’s bird and plant identification walk through Lake Cunningham Park. Lake Cunningham is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds, and its native garden is home for many resident birds for its habitat value. On this walk, Vicki Silvas-Young will show you how to identify the common birds of our area, while Arvind Kumar will identify the native plants that they depend on for food, shelter, and nesting places.
Trip Difficulty: 4 miles round trip. A nice level paved path.
Other Trip Notes: Bring a hat, water, your bird and plant list, binoculars, while wearing your comfortable walking shoes.
