Friday Bird Walk – Farren Road


Date & Time

Friday, May 10, 2024
8:30 am - 10:30 am

Farren Road is at the very western edge of Goleta. It is a road that provides access along a ridge that is between Tecolote Canyon and Eagle Canyon. The habitat is varied and thus provides a varied list of avian species from sparrows to raptors. The views of the mountains, ocean and Channel Islands is quite special as well.
