I’ve been on a couple of these events put on by the Land Trust and they’re really great.

I’m not a birder, but I learned a lot about the Coastside’s environment and why people come from all over the Bay Area to see the raptors at Wavecrest.

I drove past Wavecrest for years without realizing how large, natural and beautiful the site is.
