A Morning on the Shore

Bring a cup of coffee and start your Sunday off right with a morning walk along the marsh. The wind is usually calm, and the birds are busy feeding and flying. We'll walk through parts of the shoreline not usually open to the public and discus the different habitats and residents of this amazing place.

Salt Pond History Hike

Have you ever been curious about the white stuff you see as you travel along the San Mateo Bridge? Come on a naturalist-led walk through our salt ponds and learn about the salt farming industry that was so important to the area more than 100 years ago.

Bird Walks


The Hayward Shoreline and the San Francisco Bay are home to over 124 species of birds during the fall and winter migration. As a crucial stop on the Pacific Flyway, the Bay and surrounding salt marshes are perfect for birding whether you’re a beginner or an expert.

Who is that Mini-me of the Goose World?

We meet at the West Winton trailhead in search of the mini-me to the abundant and common Canada goose today. This relatively new bird species addition is the Cackling goose. They look in many ways identical to their big cousin, but when compared to each other in the field, the differences are quite apparent.

Just Take it One Stitch at a Time

As we explore Eden Landing Ecological Reserve this morning, we hope to see the smallish bird that pokes so rapidly into the mud that it almost appears to be sewing a blanket! This busy, foraging sandpiper is the charming dowitcher, just one of many sandpiper species we hope to check off our list today.
