9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Nestled just over the Gaviota pass from Gaviota State Beach is Nojoqui Falls County Park. There is quite a spectacular waterfall in the park (if it’s been raining) and is also home to the county’s breeding population of Purple Martins.
We will do everything we can for a safe experience, but COVID is always a risk. Additionally, SBAS may decide to cancel events should pandemic conditions warrant it. For these reasons, we ask that:
- All attendees be vaccinated, each participant bring a mask to the event, and social distancing be practiced to the greatest extent practicable.
- Masks be worn in car pool situations.
- Prior to attending any bird walk or field trip, please go to santabarbaraaudubon.org/activities for directions and event updates.
- Yellow-billed Magpie
- Purple Martin
- Blue Grosbeak
- Lazuli Bunting
- Barn Owl
- The park is in the Santa Ynez Valley
- From Hwy 101 take the Nojoqui Park turnoff (old Coast Hwy) 1.2 miles north of Gaviota Pass summit

We will hike to the falls (an easy walk) and then bird the entire park.
