Happening this Month

Each month we host free local bird walks and talks on natural history subjects in our Novato store. See the list below for details and sign-up, or visit our Nature in Novato blog for our full listing of current nature walks and other events hosted by ourselves and other local organizations. 

Sunday, March 11: Bird Walk at Ellis Creek Ponds, Petaluma, with guest leader Lisa Hug

This event has passed. We had a foggy but fun morning in Petaluma, where we saw 54 species of birds. Highlights included close-up views of red-shouldered hawks, duetting pied-billed grebes, swan courtship displays, and a wide variety of ducks and waterbirds. 

Sunday, March 18: Bird Walk at Indian Tree Open Space with Jack from WBU

Varied ThrushJoin Jack from Wild Birds Unlimited for a bird walk at Novato's Indian Tree Open Space Preserve on Sunday, March 18th from 9-11 AM. This quiet preserve contains Novato's only real conifer forest, with both redwoods and Douglas-firs creating ideal habitat for a variety of forest birds that are relatively uncommon in our part of the county, such as varied thrushes (pictured), Pacific wrens, golden-crowned kinglets, and breeding hermit thrushes in addition to other woodland favorites like band-tailed pigeons and a wide variety of woodpeckers. We'll also be paying attention to birdsong and other vocalizations as birds prepare for the nesting season. 

Participation is free, but this walk is limited to a small group size due to the singletrack trails we'll be walking on. Note that we'll be walking around 4 miles, with about 600 ft. of mostly gradual elevation gain. For more information on the birds of Indian Tree, see our park profile on our Nature in Novato blog. If you have any questions about the walk, please contact us at or (415) 893-0500.

Saturday, March 24: Native Trees of Marin, in-store seminar at WBU

More information and free registration here.

Join us at Wild Birds Unlimited in Novato for a free talk on learning how to find and identify the native trees of Marin. We'll cover about 20 native species, encompassing the great majority of the trees you are likely to encounter in natural habitats around the county. From Douglas-Firs to the oaks, we'll discuss the key features to distinguish different species and appreciate each tree's unique ecological role. 

The talk will take place at Wild Birds Unlimited on Saturday, March 24, from 9-9:45 AM. Participation is free, but space is limited. If you have any questions about the event, please contact us at or (415) 893-0500.
