About the event

World Ocean Day,  which takes place each year on June 8th, is a celebration of our our  world’s shared ocean and our personal connection to the sea. This World  Ocean Day, Big Sur Land Trust and the Monterey Audubon Society will come  together in the beauty of Glen Deven Ranch for a day of birding and  spectacular views made possible by our ocean and the conservation of  coastal lands.

Big Sur Land Trust is thrilled to host Monterey  Audubon Society field trips at Big Sur Land Trust Preserves. Monterey  Audubon Society members and Big Sur Land Trust supporters are invited to  this wonderful opportunity to explore the lands we love in a new way.  This event is appropriate for beginning birders and all those interested  in learning how to better identify our local breeding birds. Thanks to  Big Sur Land Trust’s growing partnership with Monterey Audubon Society,  we have begun using eBird to monitor the bird populations on Big Sur  Land Trust preserves. This field trip is an opportunity to contribute to  this new and growing effort and all participants will have access to a  list of birds seen during the day.

Our day will begin with an out-and-back walk along the Ridge Trail:

  • Distance: 2.5 miles
  • Elevation: ~400 ft
  • Difficulty: Easy. We’ll walk up to 2.5 miles round trip on dirt roads. (There may be a few small rocks and roots.)
  • Pace: Easy

Following  a pause to eat our picnic lunches, birders who are hardy hikers may  choose to continue their day with us with an out-and-back hike along the  Canyon Trail:

  • Distance: 4.5 miles
  • Elevation: ~900 ft
  • Difficulty:  Moderate. We’ll walk up to 4.5 miles round trip on dirt roads. (There  may be a few small rocks and roots.) This hike involves a wood plank  creek crossing.
  • Pace: Easy

Participants  should expect to be arranged into carpools. Please bring face masks and  expect to wear a mask for the safety and comfort of others, during the  ~25 minute drive from our meet-up location to Glen Deven Ranch. Poison oak and ticks are present in this area. Please come prepared.

Please note that each participant must be individually registered (including kids, who need to be accompanied by an adult) through Eventbrite.
