Birding, Botany, and Barnacles in Witty's Lagoon Park [Easy]

Come explore Witty's Lagoon Park to identify plants and see what birds can be found. The tide will be going out, so we can look for shorebirds and intertidal life. The trails are good but there is a hill to climb on the way home. Bring a snack, water, and dress for the changing conditions. You may wish to bring a change of footwear for the intertidal walk.


We'll meet in the main parking lot near the nature house at 10:00am.

    Some neat rocks visible at this site, the "boulders" in the stream when the footbridge crosses are actually pillow basalt bedrock.
