Birding with Rich Cimino
Register HERE for this Field Trip
Registration for this trip is required. Registration opens March 12 at 8:00 AM.
Beginning and experienced birders are invited to join Rich Cimino and others to bird the park. This year we will be birding the Olompali Park two days after the Spring Equinox. It’s always an exciting time to birdwatch at Olompali State Historic Park which occupies parts of two blocks in the Marin County Breeding Bird Atlas II survey. Four MAS members who are surveying the park will be with us on the outing.
Early spring arrivals should be on hand as we walk the old ranch road to the park’s reservoir. Olompali State Park features oak savanna, open grasslands and riparian habitat: There is a good assortment of species, raptors, flycatchers, swallows, vireos, warblers, woodpeckers, nuthatches, thrushes, and orioles. Be early, the field trip will start at 9 AM in the parking lot. Rain cancels.
DIRECTIONS: Exit Hwy 101 at Atherton Ave/San Marin Dr in Novato. Follow the signs to Olompali State Historic Park. A right turn onto the Old Redwood Hwy frontage road will take you to the park. There is an $8 parking fee.
