Summer Series Directions
 
BelGatos Park
BelGatos Park is located at the south end of BelGatos Road. From the store go east on Blossom Hill Road. Just past Leigh Avenue, turn right on BelGatos Road and follow it to the parking lot at the end. Since the BelGatos Road Sign is small, look for the more noticeable green Mulberry School sign directly below it.  Map

Oka Ponds
We will meet at the gate at the end of Oka Lane. Take Lark Avenue to Oka Road and follow it under Highway 85 to the end. Turn left on Mozart and take an immediate right on Oka Lane. Go to the end of the road and park along the street.  Map

Vasona Lake
We will meet at the gate by the dam on Garden Hill Drive. From Lark Avenue turn onto Garden Hill Drive (opposite the southbound 880 Lark Avenue Exit) then veer to the right at the fork in the road. Meet at the gate at the next bend in the road (before you get to the Santa Clara County Dept. of Recreation and Youth Science Institute buildings).  Map

Field Trips and Outings
Saturday Morning Local Bird Walks
 
Join us every Saturday morning for an enjoyable meander looking for birds.
 
Call the store Friday nights after 7 PM to find out where we are going the next morning. Except for our once a month all-day field trips, we go on a local bird walk from 8 to 10 am and return for bagels and shade-grown coffee. Some of the nearby places we go to are Oka Ponds, Guadalupe Oak Grove Park, Belgatos Park, Almaden Lake Park, Shoreline and Charleston Slough.
 
No Charge

Let’s Go Birding
with Lisa Myers to see the Condors

 
Saturday, August 16
8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

 
We’re going back to Big Sur in hopes of finding the magnificent California condor. With their 104″ wingspan, this vulture is not a bird you will ever forget seeing, especially since the birds we experience today were brought back from the brink of extinction. This area of California offers spectacular habitats consisting of riparian creek sides, tall Redwood Forests and rolling woodlands, not to mention coastal cliffs and kelp beds. Come help us find one the North America’s largest birds, along with many other species in between. (Los Gatos Birdwatcher will match up to $50 in donations collected this day to donate back to Ventana Wilderness Society.)
 
Fee: $30 per person + share of gas.
