Joint Mt. Diablo Audubon & Save Mount Diablo Birding Walk at Curry Canyon

May 6 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Free
All Discover Diablo hikes are subject to, and will honor, all applicable COVID-19–related restrictions in place for our area.

Mount Diablo Audubon Society and Save Mount Diablo are partnering up for a hike on Save Mount Diablo’s gorgeous Curry Canyon Ranch. This portion of Curry Canyon Ranch showcases beautiful rangeland ecosystems and valley oak and riparian habitat. We will be looking for busy song birds, grassland birds, woodpeckers, waterfowl, and raptors. You might even see a golden eagle or two! This is a chance to get to know the east side of Mount Diablo, a side that’s not normally open to the public. You’ll pass a beautiful valley with rolling hills as you walk along the creek, then transition into riparian habitat, where sun hardly breaks through the canopy of the trees.

Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring a mask, plenty of water, binoculars (if you have them) sunscreen, and a snack.

This event is limited to 20 participants.

Anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
