Why not get the love of nature and wildlife started young? Guadalupe River Park Conservancy is partnering with Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society to bring our first ever family birding program!

 

The Guadalupe River is a wildlife corridor, connecting resident birds to many different ecosystems throughout the South Bay, and also serving as a winter or summer refuge for migrating species. Guadalupe River Park Conservancy (GRPC) is proud to partner with the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society (SCVAS) to explore this unique habitat in downtown San José.

 

Learn how to identify the many interesting species that call the Guadalupe River (and sometimes your backyard) home, on a fun outdoor birding adventure led by SCVAS. The Audubon Society will teach participants how to identify bird species by sound and sight, using binoculars, keys, guidebooks, and birding techniques. No prior birding experience is necessary, but experienced birders are welcome to attend and refresh their knowledge and help fledgling learners.

 

Make sure to bring proper clothing, sturdy walking shoes, a sack lunch, and some binoculars if they are available.

 

All ages welcome!

17 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.

 

$15/members, $20/non-members

 

This program takes place at the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy Visitor & Education Center, 438 Coleman Ave., San Jose. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. For more information, visit www.grpg.org or call 408-298-7657.
