Wildlife Hike at Deer Island



The name Deer Island evokes all kinds of magical thoughts, the stuff Peter Pan fantasies are made of. Japan has an actual deer island — cause of course they do — where humans and deer live together in peace, but the Deer Island here in Marin is nothing to be scoffed at. Even though it is no longer a true island, this small preserve is still a wildlife oasis at the edge of urban Novato and the surrounding seasonal wetlands. The forest and grasslands here are home to a variety of birds (including many breeding raptors), reptiles, insects, and wildflowers. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

This walk is for ages 18 and up.

If You Go:

When: Sunday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: Deer Island Preserve
 Gate on Deer Island Lane
Novato, CA
Cost: Free
Additional event information available here.
