MDAS/SMD Field Trip—Curry Canyon

May 5 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Mount Diablo Audubon Society and Save Mount Diablo are partnering up for a hike on Save Mount Diablo’s gorgeous Curry Canyon Ranch. This portion of Curry Canyon Ranch showcases beautiful rangeland ecosystems and valley oak and riparian habitat. We’ll be looking for spring migrants (Warblers and Western Tanager), Bullock’s Oriole, and possible nesting Warbling and Cassin’s Vireos. You might even see a golden eagle or two! This is a chance to get to know the east side of Mount Diablo, a side that’s not normally open to the public. You’ll pass a beautiful valley with rolling hills as you walk along the creek, then transition into riparian habitat, where sun hardly breaks through the canopy of the trees.

Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring a mask, plenty of water, binoculars (if you have them) sunscreen, and a snack.

Participants will be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration)
