About the Event

UCSF Mt. Sutro Open Space Reserve, San Francisco Saturday March 7, 8:30 - 11am Whitney Grover, wlgrover@gmail.com, cell: 831-421-2949 and  Pat Greene, pjgreene@sonic.net, cell: 415-481-5469

The Mt. Sutro Open Space Reserve is a 61 acre fragment of the more than 2000 acres of trees planted by Adolf Sutro in the late 19th century, and now cared for by the Sutro Stewards (https://www.sutrostewards.org/trail-map). We will be walking about 2 miles of unpaved trails through the forest and around the summit. There will be uphill climbing and the trails can be narrow and rocky in places. There are benches at the summit and Aldea, but not along the trails. All ages and experience levels are welcome. 

Mt. Sutro is a great place to focus on listening to locals and getting more intimate encounters with some of our regular birds. Overwintering birds  are still around, and early spring breeding has begun. We should hear Pacific Wren, Song Sparrow, and others beginning their Spring songs.

Parking and meeting at the UCSF Woods Lot at 100 Medical Center Way at 8:30am. We are given permission through UCSF/Sutro Stewards to use the parking lot for the morning, you can disregard the permit only signs. The UCSF campus can be reached by public transit via the N Judah light rail, 43 bus, 6 bus and 66 bus. And then the Woods Lot is a 10 minute hike up from there. There are restrooms and a water fountain at the Aldea Center. 

If you need directions or advice on how to get there, please email us at wlgrover@gmail.com, or pjgreene@sonic.net.
