On Saturday, May 10th, Return of the Natives will be conducting its biannual bird count at Salinas' Upper Carr Lake. There will be lots of new birds nesting during this time of year! Why count birds? The quantity and diversity of birds helps us to assess the success of our ongoing habitat restoration work. Also, it is fun! We will also be continuing our ongoing cleanup efforts by picking up trash and pulling invasive weeds. Volunteers are invited to come and enjoy the scenery, count and watch the birds, and help to upkeep this habitat from unnecessary pollution by picking up trash. Expert and novice birders are encouraged to join. Come learn about local birds! Everyone is welcome. Volunteers are needed. This is a great family activity that is FREE. Tools, water and great snacks provided. Upper Carr Lake is located on East Laurel Drive between Constitution and Sanborn Rd. in Salinas. Look for the RON community event signs!
