Great Blue Heron Walk

We discovered this park last year on one of our wildflower walks...

Join a Regional Parks ranger on a bird walk at Riverfront Regional Park. This park west of Windsor is a rookery for great blue herons, and this twilight walk will be a great opportunity to learn more about the birds and perhaps see them feeding their young. Free. Meet in the parking lot near the redwood grove. Parking is $7 or free for Regional Parks members.

There are picnic tables close by the parking area if anyone wants to have a little dinner snack before it starts....

    Thank you, Rose, for arranging this walk with a Ranger. It was very informative about Great Blue Herons and so fun to watch them in the nests in his scope! It was fun to stand under the nesting trees and hear the babies calling for their mothers to feed them.

    I emailed you Wendy, no need to watch from my gold Explorer in the parking lot, a work problem keeps me from attending. Hope you see lots of those blue beauties!

    I don't think it's that bad- there's a nice breeze here in Sebastopol....I expected it to get roasting hot in my upstairs apartment, but it has not.

    I just want to say up front, I have not gone walking or hiking in to many years to remember. I may have to start out on my own to get in shape, or stick with the real easy outings. One thing I am starting up again is golf. It will help with my break in time into hiking.

    • wendy

      Barry..this will be an easy walk and Thursday at Foothill is one easy and one harder - and next Tuesday at Crane is easy also

    Wendy,
    If there is still room, I'd like to ride with you. I could meet you at your house. You can send me a private message with the address (neglected to write it down last time and I don't trust my memory).
