About the event

Attendees of the two-day Rare Shoreline Species Workshop will have the opportunity to learn about four federally- and state- listed species in both a lecture and field setting. Our species experts will review the habitat, range, life history, and field identification tips for the following:

California Ridgway’s Rail, Federally and State Endangered

Western Snowy Plover, Federally Threatened, State Species of Special


California Least Tern, Federally and State Endangered

Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse, Federally and State Endangered

The lecture portion will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline Center, which overlooks the bay on Friday, June 28 from 9AM to 4:30PM. The field portion will include visits to Arrowhead Marsh to view Ridgway’s rails, and to the Hayward Shoreline where we will observe least terns, snowy plovers, and check traps for salt marsh harvest mice, and will take place Saturday, June 29 from 5AM to 10:30AM. Goals of the workshop will be for attendees to leave with a comprehensive understanding of each species’ habitats and the tools to reliably identify the four species in the field. No handling of any of the listed species will occur, but we will make an effort to see each species during the field portion.
