Join GTRLC staff and AmeriCorps members on a birding hike through the natural area to discover what birds are utilizing this stretch of protected land. Maple Bay is one of several sites that are featured in the Sunset Coast Birding Trail, (sunsetcoastbirdingtrail.org) which provides information about birding in the region and highlights sites that offer prime birding opportunities. This event is part of a larger series of hikes to promote the grand opening of the birding trail. This hike will take participants through farmland, open and forested dunes, coastal wetlands as well as sand and cobble beach. Participants should be prepared for a moderate hike down a slight slope to the beach and some off trail activities. Please bring appropriate apparel for the weather, water and binoculars if you have them.
