Join a Special Walk at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve: Presented by the Friends of Fiscalini Ranch Preserve
Location: Registrants will be informed of location
Date and Time: Saturday, August 5, 10:00AM-12:00 Noon
Docent: Mark Mushkat and Michael Mulroy (Morro Coast Audubon Society)
Join us to explore the Bluff Trail on the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve with two docents from the Morro Coast Audubon Society! The emphasis will be on bird life in various habitats: coastal meadows, rocky shore, surf zone and distant ocean. We’ll be looking for migrating land and seabirds as well as local residents like pelicans, scoters, terns and, if lucky, shearwaters rafting in huge numbers!
Of course there’s always the possibility of good views of marine mammals, especially sea otters. We’ll keep an eye out for whales and dolphins too. Michael is expert in the field of lichenology, so we’ll likely have the chance to see unusual coastal lichen species as well.
This 2-hour stroll along the Fiscalini Bluff Trail is approximately 2 miles with no elevation. There are no toilet facilities on the Ranch...be prepared. The walk is open and free to all by reservation only. Children are welcome with adult supervision. No dogs please. Rain cancels.
