Twain's Frog and the Beautiful Serpent Hike at Mori Point

You are invited to join Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute for a leisurely stroll through Mori Point in search of the two most imperiled species on the San Francisco Peninsula: the San Francisco garter snake and the California red-legged frog. Learn about the ongoing habitat restoration at Mori Point and the efforts being taken to save the snakes and the frogs from extinction.

Bring your binoculars because Mori Point is wonderful place to see birds and other wildlife as well.  This is a great outing for kids!

Meet at the Mori Point Entrance Gate, at the intersection of Bradford Way and Mori Point Road, Pacifica, CA, 94044. This event is rain or shine.

If anyone would like to attend, but needs a ride we will do our best to make arrangements. Please note if you are willing to pick people up from a particular location.

You can learn more about these two species at:
California red-legged frog
San Francisco garter snake

    It was a great meet-up. I've been to the pacifica beaches a few times, but I have not walked the area we walked today. Brett did an excellent job & we were quite pleased with the "talking" walk....:)

    We saw California red legged frogs in two spots, no snakes :( We also saw Black Phoebes, a Red-tailed hawk, a Northern Harrier, and some Ruddy ducks. A good outing all around. Thanks for coming along.
