Limit of 15 fully vaccinated participants for this trip. Registration for the Nicasio/Tomales Bay trip will be open starting on February 23 at 8:00 AM. There will not be a waiting list.
The rolling hills of central Marin are covered with pastures, horse ranches, forested ridges, homes, reservoirs and occupied by many interesting birds. We will look for them in and around Nicasio and along the nearby stream before heading 3 miles north to see what is on and around Nicasio Reservoir. This is Bob’s birding “patch” and he has found both Bald and Golden Eagles recently with a nice array of other birds in this vicinity.
We expect to travel the few miles to Point Reyes Station for a lunch break or picnic. In the afternoon we will explore the south end Tomales Bay. Then, as time allows, we can explore the eastern edge of Tomales Bay along Highway 1, which supports a winter population of thousands of ducks, geese and shorebirds. We might travel 10 miles north to see if an Eagle’s nest is having success. Heavy Rain cancels.
Directions: Meet at the ball field in Nicasio
From Hwy 101 in north San Rafael take Lucas Valley road west 10.3 miles then right turn onto Nicasio Valley road for 0.5 miles and park near the baseball field, the center of town.
