Join Larry Broderick for a Bird of Prey Hike at Lynch Canyon Open Space Park on Saturday February 11th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Take advantage of this special opportunity to discover, observe and learn about eagles, hawks and other raptors because this hike is part of the 28th Annual San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival. This hike will offer raptor identification tips and views of resident and over-wintering birds of prey. Previous sightings include golden eagles, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, Cooper’s hawks, sharp-shinned hawks, ferruginous hawks, peregrine falcons, prairie falcons and other more common birds of prey. All ages are welcome, but participants must be prepared for a moderate pace covering about 4 miles, possibly off-trail in places, up and down rugged, steep, and slippery hills that are full of sticky seeds, thorny plants and thistle, and passing free range cattle along the way.

*PLEASE NOTE: The hike fee is $10. There is a separate parking fee of $6 at Lynch Canyon. Registration is required.
