Bird of Prey Workshop and Hike
SOLANO LAND TRUST Rush Ranch
Learn about eagles, hawks and falcons – the ways they fly, what they eat, where they hunt and rest, and why they migrate long distances or stay in one place all year. In the workshop (up to two hours), Larry Broderick covers birds of prey identification methods, natural history and threats, and the importance of habitat protection and restoration. Participants learn how to identify differences between species, distinctions across individuals within one species, and changes over time during one individual’s life. A hike (up to 1.5 miles) after the workshop gives the group an opportunity to practice spotting eagles, falcons and hawks in the hills and above the marsh. Registration is Recommended online. Space is limited. Solano Land Trust will provide binoculars. A chili lunch will be provided for registered participants. We encourage everyone to support and donate towards The Suisun Wildlife Center even if they are not interested in the hike or workshop. In lieu of the $10 fee, donations will be accepted for The Suisun Wildlife Center. Find a list of items HERE.
