Birding the Santa Cruz Mountains with Leaders Biologist Ryan Phillips and Lisa Myers

8:00AM – 4:00PM

We'll take advantage of our proximity to the Santa Cruz Mountains and sped the day looking for early migrants returning to our area to breed. We will also be on the look-out for the resident breeders that make the mountains their home. There are many wonderful open spaces throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains including Castle Rock State Park. We are hoping the new Bear Creek Redwoods Open Space will open by this date! Our final route will be decided before the tour. Fee: $70 (includes transportation and entrance fees.)  Waiting List only
