Condor Fundraising Hikes at Pinnacles National Park

Condor Fundraising Birding Hikes

Join Pinnacles Partnership's Pinnacles Condor Fund for their Guided Birding Hikes this fall at Pinnacles National Park.  Funds raised through these hikes will benefit the Condor Restoration Program.

The hikes will be led by Rusty Scalf and Richard Neidhardt. Scalf is a life-long birder who has been teaching bird identification to beginning birders since 1990. He is active in the County Breeding Bird Atlas programs of Alameda, Contra Costa, Yolo, and Solano counties. He also leads trips for the Monterey Birding Festival.  Neidhardt is a long-time volunteer on the Pinnacles Condor Crew and has intimate knowledge of the Central California condor flock.

Fall hike dates are Oct. 4 and 18, Nov. 1 and 22, and Dec. 6.  Participation requires a $50 donation per person.  All walks meet at the east side Visitor Center at 8:30 a.m. Participants should bring binoculars, water, lunch, and sun protection. Hikes are individualized depending on participants and other conditions.
