Morning Meander: Salt Marsh to Bay

January 25, 2023
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Stevens Creek Shoreline Nature Area
Approximate Total Miles

Grab your binoculars and join Docent Naturalists Laura Levin, Kate Bauer, and Marie-Anne Neimat for this leisurely-paced birding walk on the Stevens Creek and Levee trails. You'll identify resident and migratory waterfowl and shorebirds as you scan the wetlands and mudflats of San Francisco Bay at low tide. You'll also watch for raptors attracted by abundant prey. Along the way, you'll learn about the plants and other wildlife that thrive in salt marsh habitat.

Where to Meet

Meet in the “Kite Area” parking lot at Shoreline-at-Mountain View Park. From Highway 101, take Shoreline Boulevard east to the Shoreline Park entrance.  After passing the entrance kiosk, turn right into the parking lot.
