Fundraising Birding Hikes at Pinnacles National Park
posted: September 16, 2014
Join Pinnacles Partnership's Pinnacles Condor Fund for their Guided Birding Hikes this fall at Pinnacles National Park. Funds raised through these hikes will benefit the Condor Restoration Program.
Hikes will be led by Rusty Scalf and Richard Neidhardt. Scalf is a life-long birder who has been teaching bird identification to beginning birders since 1990. He is active in the County Breeding Bird Atlas programs of Alameda, Contra Costa, Yolo, and Solano counties. He also leads trips for the Monterey Birding Festival. Neidhardt is a long-time volunteer on the Pinnacles National Park's Condor Crew and has intimate knowledge of the Central California condor flock.
Fall hike dates are:
- October 4 and 18
- November 1 and 22
- December. 6
The participation donation is $50 per person. All walks meet at the east side Visitor Center at 8:30 a.m. Participants should bring binoculars, water, lunch, and sun protection. Hiking trails and length of time are individualized depending on participants and other conditions. Plan to enjoy a full day of learning at Pinnacles National Park!
