Leader: David Riensche

This pre-dawn adventure will focus on finding California Black Rail, Sora, Virginia Rail, and American Bittern. During our stroll along the one-mile, flat Harrier Trail, we will explore its namesake bird while enjoying views of kites, shrikes, shorebirds, and wonderful waterfowl. We will use “Doc Quack’s” special access code to visit this newly restored marshland, so you must be there by 5:45 am as all access gates will be locked at 0600. Dress in layers and bring light rain gear as needed. This is a wheelchair-accessible field trip. Pre-registration is desired, and all are welcome.
Directions: From Highway 4 in Bay Point, exit at the Bay Point/San Marco Boulevard exit and go north onto Willow Pass Road, towards the river. After about 1/2 mile, turn left onto Port Chicago Highway. Proceed for about 1.25 miles and take McAvoy Road to the trail staging area on the left.
