Leaders: Stephanie Floyd and Park Ranger Sandy Ferreira,
By popular demand, we’ve added a new field trip to Lake Elizabeth during fall migration. Winter geese and ducks may be starting to arrive. In the reeds that line the lake and in the willows along the creek we may find herons, woodpeckers, sparrows, and, if there's been rain, the puddles may hold Killdeer and snipe. Yellow-Rumped Warblers will be moving in as Yellow Warblers move out. Ranger Sandy may update us on how this year’s Tree Swallow nesting program went. As time allows, we’ll check out productive Gomes Park, too. Plan to walk about 2 1/2 miles on paved paths. 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 end of the parking lot.
