Note that this June walk will be the third Sunday, rather than on the first weekend of the month. Maddy has been monitoring these nearshore rocks for nesting seabirds for a few months this summer and will be able to share her observations and knowledge of these colonially nesting species, likely including cormorants, gulls, and murres, and we will also likely see some great terrestrial species as we walk around Trinidad Head. Scopes are strongly encouraged if you have one but we will also bring several to share.
