The new year starts with two events that are focused on our feathered friends:
On Saturday, January 20, we’ll meet in Hanns Park from 9 a.m. to noon to monitor the bird boxes built by Alliance volunteers. We’ll see which birds used them in the last year, and get them prepped for the upcoming nesting season. Park in the Hanns Park parking lot (Skyline Blvd. off Redwood Parkway). Follow signs a short way up the path to the native grass meadow. RSVP to Info@VallejoWatershedAlliance.org. Wear comfortable clothes, sturdy shoes, hat, sunscreen, and gloves. Free refreshments.
Join the Vallejo Watershed Alliance at the San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival, which runs February 9-10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mare Island. There are loads of free bird walks, trail hikes, a vendor expo, and more! Our Alliance table could use volunteers as well: email Info@VallejoWatershedAlliance.org if you can help out with a 2-hour shift. It’s a great way to experience the festival! Just visiting the festival? Visit : www.SFBayFlywayFestival.com for more info.
