This event has no future dates currently scheduled.

As we celebrate the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration's 20th anniversary, Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge's 51st, and World Conservation Day, you can come explore a Menlo Park hidden gem for migratory shorebirds and nesting waterbirds!

You'll take a leisurely stroll with Wildlife Biologist Rachel Tertes along a Ravenswood pond with bird nesting islands just south of Dumbarton Bridge. You'll view a variety of waterbirds, including nesting terns and early visitors from the fall shorebird migration, and learn about the Restoration Project. 

This free event is open to all, but registration is required. You can register here

Here is a Google Maps link to help you get there!

This is a 1.4-mile round trip along Pond SF2 on an all-weather, accessible trail (one overlook has a 4-inch step). Parking and bathroom are on site. Some binoculars will be available to borrow. Meet at the parking area on the south side of the Dumbarton Bridge - the trail runs from south from the parking area.
