Hawk Hill for the Fall Raptor Migration

9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Did you know we have a hawk migration hot spot just north of us located in the Marin Headlands? Every year during the fall, hundreds of volunteers from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) spend thousands of hours counting and identifying the thousands of raptors that fly over on their migration south. The GGRO's mission is to inspire the preservation of California raptor populations as they track the Golden Gate migration. We will continue to Hawk Hill where we will join the hawk watchers of GGRO as they look to the skies and count hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures, birds collectively called "raptors." Biologist and raptor expert Ryan Phillips and Lisa Myers co-lead this tour. Fee: $70, includes transportation

Sandhill Crane Sunset Tour with the
International Crane Foundation

11:00 AM – 8:30 PM
California's Central Valley near Stockton

Everyone knows that the Sandhill Crane is Lisa’s favorite North American bird species. Did you know that one of her favorite non-profits is the International Crane Foundation? In fact, every time Lisa leads a crane tour, part of the proceeds are sent to the International Crane Foundation. This organization works diligently to protect the 15 species of cranes found throughout the world.

In appreciation of our support throughout the years they have put us in contact with biologist Paul Tebbel. We are so excited to partner with Paul as we visit the Sandhill Cranes just arriving to California’s Central Valley for the winter.

This tour is $90 and includes transportation. Part of the proceeds from this trip will go directly to the International Crane Foundation. Book your seat sooner than later — Trip fills at 25.
