Bird & Conservation Walks
Point Blue offers on-site explorations of our cutting-edge field studies and projects. These walks are a way for our members and the public to learn first-hand about the work we are doing, interact with our staff, and become ambassadors for ecosystem conservation.
Most of our walks are member-exclusive. If you are not a member, you can join when you sign up. Members can bring non-member friends for $25 per person, age 17 and under free. Check out the schedule below.
Just about all of our walks require sign-up.

Sunday, December 11, 2016: Wetland and Riparian Birds and Habitat, Bolinas Lagoon, Bolinas, CA, 9am-11am. Come learn about our long term study of songbirds in the riparian, or creekside, habitat and waterbirds in the wetland habitats along beautiful Bolinas Lagoon in West Marin County. You'll see science in action and songbirds up close as we join Point Blue biologists for bird banding in the riparian. Then we'll venture out closer to the edge of the lagoon with spotting scopes to explore waterbirds. We'll discuss birds as indicators and effects of climate change on wildlife, ecosystems and human communities.
Members only walk.
Sign up required by 11/29/16. Contact Shannon Wesley, Advancement Associate, at email@example.com or 707-781-2555 ext. 387 to sign up.

Saturday, February 4, 2017: Winter Waterbirds of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, 9am-1pm. Join Point Blue ecologists in the wetlands of the San Francisco Bay Delta at Staten Island and the Cosumnes River Preserve to learn about our long-term involvement in monitoring and guiding habitat management for wintering waterbirds. The Delta is vitally important for California's water supply, agricultural activities and wildlife. A large proportion of the state's Pacific Flyway migratory water birds rely on the region's agricultural fields and wetlands and astonishing numbers of waterbirds can be viewed in the winter months. There are a number of challenges this area faces now with drought, increasing demands for water with an increasing human population, and the effects of climate change. Come learn how Point Blue is using science to help guide management for ecosystem resilience using birds as indicators. Meeting location to be announced, upon sign-up.
Members only walk. Become a member of Point Blue to attend.
Sign up required by Tuesday, 1/31/17. Contact Shannon Wesley, Advancement Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-781-2555 ext. 387 to sign up.
