One Good “Tern” Deserves Another –
Workshop with Biologist Ryan Phillips

SATURDAY, AUGUST 11  •  8:00 AM – 12 noon

The Bay Area provides such a variety of habitats that creating new workshops is easy. This new workshop will focus on the family of birds known as Terns. Many different species of Terns come to the area each Summer. Because they have similar field marks they can be a challenge to identify. We will spend the morning at the bay learning the differences between the many different terns that come

through. We will be on the look out for Caspian Tern and Forster’s Tern. There will also be a chance to see Least and Black Terns too. Call the store to sign-up 408-358-9453. Location to be determined closer to the event depending on reports. Participants will meet at the workshop or carpool from the store. Fee: $35 per workshop

San Bruno Mtn. and Devil’s Slide with Biologist Ryan Phillips and Lisa Myers

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15  •  8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

We will spend the day birding the dramatic habitats of two north bay open spaces. We will spend the morning on San Bruno Mountain. This open habitat provides an oasis in the middle of our highly populated San Francisco Bay Area. There will be some walking as we look for the birds that use this habitat to escape the city below. After lunch we will head to Devil’s Slide. This once considered “very dangerous” stretch of road is no longer used for cars and is simply an open space for nature lovers. We will walk the road as we look for birds along the rugged coast below and on the hill side throughout the slide. We may experience both fog and sunshine throughout our day. Fee: $65 (includes transportation & entrance fees).
