Valle Vista Staging Area, Upper San Leandro Reservoir, Moraga
Saturday, June 15, 8:30 –11:30 a.m.
Madeline Brane, Johan Langewis

This EBMUD watershed land features a great variety of habitats: chaparral and scrub, grassland, pine-oak woodland, marsh, and the top of the reservoir. Likely birds include raptors, sparrows, California Thrasher, nuthatches, wrens, and the shy Wood Ducks. Walking is on hard-packed trails, with some gentle up- and downhill. There is a pit toilet at the staging area, but no drinking water.

We’ll be walking about 2 miles. Meet at the Valle Vista Staging Area parking lot.

Families with kids are encouraged. Moderate rain cancels. If in doubt, contact Madeline on the day of the walk.
