What: Carpinteria Salt Marsh protects one of California’s few remaining coastal estuaries. The Carpinteria Salt Marsh is a haven for migrating birds, the foundation for much of the local food chain, as well as a nursery for marine fish. At least 190 bird species, including some threatened or endangered species, have been recorded at the Marsh. Enjoy a morning of bird watching with Land Trust Conservation Manager and expert birder Bruce Reitherman.
Where: Carpinteria Salt Marsh
When: April 3, Please arrive at 7:30 am. We will promptly leave at 8:00 am
Why: Possible sightings of interest include the Belding savanna sparrow, kingfisher, osprey, peregrine falcon, egrets, herons, terns and shorebirds of many kinds.  Maybe even catch a glimpse of a roadrunner or the resident red fox that now inhabits the marsh.  Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one or borrow some from Bruce when you arrive for views that are up close and personal.

Beginners to experts will all find something to like and learn about on this excursion to one of California’s most threatened habitats.  Come and enjoy a pleasant walk amongst birds of shore and sea, or gather to discuss the fate of California’s coastal ecology in a world where sea level is on the rise.
