12-18-2021 Lynch Canyon Raptor tour, tomorrow! 10am 2pm
Details: Bird of Prey season is back!
Join Larry Broderick for the 2021- 2022 season at Lynch Canyon and Rush Ranch!
Each year from fall through late winter, raptor expert Larry Broderick of West County Hawkwatch leads weekend hikes and workshops so people can learn about the birds of prey that call the Solano Land Trust properties their home.
During this viewing season, bring your binoculars and join a group to see the magnificent bids that rely on our protected agricultural open spaces for habitat. Birders of all levels of experience are welcome.
Dedicated to Ken Poerner:
By request, Larry Broderick would like to dedicate this year’s Bird of Prey season in honor of our dear friend Ken Poerner, whose tireless dedication to conservation touched every aspect of Solano Land Trust’s work. Ken passed in early June of this year after a ten-year battle with cancer. It was Ken who first introduced the Solano Land Trust to Larry, and Larry’s expertise and passion have been an invaluable asset to the land trust and the community we serve for many years.
