Exploring the San Lorenzo River

March 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The San Lorenzo River watershed is home to you and me, AND all sorts of birds and bugs, fish and fungus, plants and amphibians. Learn about the wildlife that lives in and along the river during the 2nd Annual Exploring the San Lorenzo River Series!

Join expert birders, wildlife specialists, and fisheries biologists on guided walks along the river, to learn and connect with this beautiful natural resource in our own backyards. At the culmination of these walks we will celebrate Earth Day with a citizen science “BioBlitz” to capture biodiversity data along the river.
