Ennisbrook Openspace/preserve/trail, known to the locals as the “100 acre wood” is located along the San Ysidro Creek between East Valley Road to the north and San Leandro Lane  to the south. It is a riparian area rich in Oak woodland with many tall sycamore trees which provide habitat for many of our avian friends. eBird reports 118 species for this area.

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:
