Birding Walk at the Wetlands: Giacomini Wetland 15th AnniversarySat, October 28
On October 25, 2008, 550 acres of dairy pasture were reconnected to the waters of Tomales Bay and Lagunitas Creek, and the restored marsh lands were named the Giacomini Wetlands in honor of the family who had ranched the land since it was diked in the 1940s. A short walk from downtown Point Reyes Station, native grasses flourish and great egrets hunt where cows once roamed. Come join Mary Anne Flett and John Dell’Osso, on the anniversary of the day when the final levee was breached, to learn about bird activity in this area. Remember to bring your binoculars! The Giacomini Wetlands have been described as one of the top 10 birding destinations in the world by National Geographic.
