9/4 Out and About: Birding at Neary Lagoon

Let’s get out and about! This month we’ll be looking for birds at Neary Lagoon Wildlife Refuge, an oasis for local wildlife in the heart of Santa Cruz. We’ll bring binoculars for each participant and share tips for identifying birds during this one-mile walk.

This program is based on the Museum’s Wetland Walk field trip for 3rd grade students where we explore concepts of seasonal change, migration, and human impacts by exploring this important wetland habitat and recording observations. Families are encouraged to attend, but all ages are welcome.

Saturday, September 4 | 10 a.m. to noon
