Event: NSAS Field Trip to Hamilton Wetlands & Las Gallinas WTP

Date: Saturday March 20, 2021

Time: 8:30 AM

Join us for a fun Field Trip with Christina McWhorter and Mark Stephenson to Observe the Shorebirds of Hamilton Wetlands and the Wonderful Marsh Habitats at Las Gallinas WTP ! Hamilton / Bel Marin Keys Restoration Project is returning this section of the Bay to their native salt marsh wetlands that were destroyed when levees were constructed in the 1850s and altered again when the old Hamilton AFB was created. Well meet Christina at the nursery and she will review the restoration project for us, then we will continue out into the wetlands area to view the vastly increasing numbers of migratory shorebirds and waterfowl. After lunch for folks interested in making it a full day, we will continue to Las Gallinas to look for Bitterns, Rails, and Waterfowl at this amazing WTP.
