Hayward Regional Shoreline – Frank’s Dump
Saturday September 17, 2:30pm – 5:30pm
We will meet at the very end of Winton Ave, walk out to the Bay Trail and head north. We should arrive at Frank’s Dump – a major high tide roost for shorebirds – when the tide has been coming in for about 4 hours, and with the afternoon sun at our backs for good viewing. We’ll walk about 3 miles on flat, unpaved trails.
Birders of all levels welcome!
