Skagg’s Island Road

January 31 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Wednesday, January 31, 2024
10 AM – 2 PM
Birding with Daniel Edelstein
Register HERE for this Field Trip

Registration required. Registration opens January 21st at 8AM.

Skaggs Island Road; flat, level hiking on road for no more than 1.5 miles; lunch at bridge ~.6 mile from the parking area at Highway 37.

Daniel invites you to discover the joy of a wilderness-like paradise — Skaggs Island Road — that often attracts dozens of shorebird and duck family members, in addition to uncommon, visiting non-breeding raptors such as Rough-legged Hawk, Ferruginous Hawk, and Merlin (along with sightings of White-tailed Kite and other raptor species).

Closed to the public, Skaggs Island Road is accessed by meeting our group in the parking area adjacent to Hwy. 37 (approximately 3 miles east of Reclamation Road and 2 miles east of the Highway 121/Sears Point Raceway intersection (at the stoplight). We’ll meet on the north side of Hwy. 37 where it intersects with Skaggs Is. Rd. and bird together while walking north on the road.

Please be careful turning into this road when coming from Marin Co. because oncoming traffic is often heavy.

Here’s a map link that shows where we’ll meet:
