Valle Vista Staging Area, Upper San Leandro Reservoir, Moraga
Saturday, August 17, 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.

No registration or sign up required. Open to the public. You don't have to be a member of Golden Gate Audubon.
