We are proud to announce that we will be welcoming the public to attend a California condor release on Saturday, April 21, 2007. The public can watch the release from a viewing area that is within sight of the release facility.
The time for the event has not been set yet, but it will begin sometime between 9:00 and 10:30 am on the east side of the monument.
The hike to the viewing area from the trailhead is about a mile and a quarter. Please bring water, snacks, hats, and sunscreen.
Parking spaces at Pinnacles are limited; we encourage carpooling. A shuttle will be in operation to provide transportation from parking areas to the trailhead for the viewing area.
More information about the event will be posted in the weeks to come.
