Upcoming Tours

Tours below require a reservation, please call the store to save your spot,

Santa Cruz Hot Spots

SATURDAY, JULY 8, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

We will head to the coast and spend the day birding in and around Natural Bridges State Beach. Natural Bridges is known for its fall concentration of Monarch Butterflies. While this is not the time of year to find these beautiful butterflies, it's a great time to find birds enjoying the breeding season along the coast. There is a lot of habitat to explore from meadows to coastline, as a result we will see a variety of species. Biologist Ryan Phillips and Lisa will co-lead this tour. Fee: $65 and includes entrance fees & transportation.

Raptor Workshop 2017 #2 with Biologist Ryan Phillips 

THURSDAY, AUGUST 26  •  8:00 AM – 12:30 PM


Our raptor workshops are extremely popular and fill fast, so we are scheduling additional workshops. For this day Ryan will concentrate on the summer time activities of Northern California’s raptors. We will meet in the south San Jose birding hot spot known as Coyote Valley Open Space. Carpooling will be encouraged. Ryan will discuss the different raptor families—eagles, buteos, accipiters, harriers and falcons. Lisa Myers will also be there to help with birding activities. Fee: $45.

Experience California's Annual Raptor Migration 

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30  •  9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Did you know we have a hawk migration hot spot just north of us located in the Marin Headlands? It’s true! Every fall hundreds of volunteers from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) spend thousands of hours counting and identifying the thousands of raptors that fly over on their migration south. The GGRO’s mission is to inspire the preservation of California raptor populations as they track the Golden Gate migration. We will continue to Hawk Hill where we will join the hawk watchers of GGRO as they look to the skies and count hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures, birds collectively called “raptors.” Biologist and raptor expert Ryan Phillips and Lisa Myers co-lead this tour. Call the store to reserve your seat: (408) 358-9453.
Fee: $60 includes transportation.
