Let’s Go Birding with Lisa Myers
to San Bruno Mountain
Saturday, Sept. 19, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
San Bruno Mountain is located at the northern end of the Santa
Cruz Mountains and is the 1300’ foot peak visible from throughout
the San Francisco peninsula. The mountain is home to a 2,378 acre
park with 360 degree panoramic views of the entire Bay Area. This
high mountain habitat is also a great place to look for fall migration
activity. As the birds work their way south for the winter they often
take refuge in this open space high above the heavily populated
cities below. This day will include some walking as we bird from
several of the trails found in the park. Fee: $60 Includes transportation.
