Did you know that the Presidio is a birding hotspot in the Bay Area? After a short “binocular bootcamp and birding basics” kids and their families will join experienced birders in teams on different routes throughout the Presidio. After an easy 2 hour walk counting observed bird life, groups will return to Baker Beach to tally their numbers during lunch. The day will be topped off with presentations of the day’s numbers by kids!


Lunch will not be provided, so bring a lunch and snacks as needed. Please remember to dress in layers and bring water. Binoculars are not required, but recommended if you have them (a supply of binoculars will be available to borrow for the day).


Because space is limited for this event, please RSVP to Damien Raffa at: draffa@presidiotrust.gov or 415- 561-4449. This event is free and co-sponsored by the Presidio Trust and the Golden Gate Audubon Society.
