There are hundreds of coastal birds that frequent Mendocino County,
and the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society invites you to see them for yourself. Join the
MCAS for endlessly fascinating walks and field trips at the Mendocino Coast Botanical
Gardens, MacKerricher State Park, Van Damme State Park, Virgin Creek and elsewhere.
The walks at the Botanical Gardens are regularly scheduled for the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month, with free admission for Botanical Garden members and special reduced rates for nonmembers. Generally the Saturday walks are designed with beginners in mind and the Wednesday walks for more experienced birders, but anyone is welcome to join in, regardless of experience. Also, binoculars are available for those who need them.
Field Trips are scheduled for the second Saturday of each month. The locations, local birding hot spots, are selected to take advantage of seasonal birding opportunities. Check the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society’s calendar on their website for times and information.
