Sequoia Audubon Society docents lead walks at Edgewood park

Docents with the Sequoia Audubon Society will lead three morning walks for those interested in learning about birds in Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve, located off Edgewood Road, about one mile east of Interstate 280.

The walks, part of the 20th anniversary celebration by Friends of Edgewood, will be held on three Sundays: March 10, April 14 and May 12.

The walks, which start at 8 a.m. at the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center in the park, will pass through woodland, chaparral, and grasslands. Visitors will learn which resident and migrating birds use Edgewood and which native plant communities the birds depend on. Visitors may see raptors, sparrows, warblers and bluebirds, among many others.

The walks cover approximately three to four miles of trails and include some uphill/downhill sections. Walkers should bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, and sunscreen. The walks are geared to adults, but capable, attentive children 10 years and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Heavy rain will cancel the walk.
