Founded as Point Reyes Bird Observatory in 1965, our award-winning bird ecology research, management tools and field training programs are advancing biodiversity conservation on land and at sea. Birds are excellent indicators of environmental health. Relatively inexpensive to monitor and widely distributed, birds serve as ideal proxies for the ecosystems they inhabit.
Join us for our monthly bird walks during the first weekend of each month! Meet PRBO biologists and learn about bird species and their habitats during a 2 hour (9am-11am) walk around PRBO research locations or other habitats in the North Bay. The walk is free to PRBO members and a $10 suggested donation for non-members. Sign-ups are only necessary for groups five people or larger.
Best Time for Viewing: Early morning
