Leaders: Stephanie Floyd & Park Ranger Sandy Ferreira
On this annual field trip to Lake Elizabeth in Fremont's Central Park, we should find newly-arrived Allen's and/or Rufous Hummingbirds, and the soccer fields may be hosting winter geese such as Greater White-Fronted Geese and Cackling Geese. Tree Swallows will be swirling at the lake again, and Ranger Sandy will update us on the successful nest box program. We've added pretty little Gomes Park to our walk where along Mission Creek we may see Pine Siskins, American Goldfinches, and rare sparrows as well as resident Green Heron, woodpeckers, and other songbirds. Plan to walk about 3.0 miles mostly
on paved paths. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome. Rain cancels.
Directions: From I-880, exit at Stevenson and go east (towards the hills) Turn right at Paseo Padre Parkway and follow the signs for the Aqua Adventure Waterpark. The parking lot for the Waterpark dead ends at the south end of the lake. Meet at the five tall palm trees at the lake end of the parking lot.
