Bluebird on Toyon Trail at Edgewood Park

This spring you’ll have the unique opportunity to join experts from Sequoia Audubon Society on three morning walks through Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve. The walks are being offered in partnership with the Friends of Edgewood as part of their Year of Edgewood series of events celebrating the 20th anniversary of the founding of their organization.

The walks will pass through woodland, chaparral, and grassland communities. You’ll learn which resident and migrating birds use Edgewood and which native plant communities they depend on. You will likely see raptors, sparrows, warblers, bluebirds and many more. No experience is necessary. The birding experts love to share their knowledge.

These walks cover approximately 3 to 4 miles of trails and include some uphill/downhill sections. Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, and sunscreen. The walks are geared to adults, but capable, attentive children 10 years and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Heavy rain cancels.

The walks take place on March 10, April 14, and May 12 and start at 8:00 am from the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center. Space is limited and you must register to attend. To register, and for more information, please visit Friends of Edgewood and click on the balloons.
