Join the thousands of people who are taking to the trails not only for scenic beauty and wildlife viewing, but for the many health benefits it provides. Take the challenge to complete at least seven of refuge trails scattered throughout the east and south bay by October 18, 2014. Trails in the San Pablo Bay Refuge and Salinas River Refuge can also count! There will be one or two scheduled hikes on the trails if you'd rather walk with a group. Check the Activities list.
Upon registering (required), you will receive a booklet containing information on Don Edwards, San Pablo Bay, and Salinas River Refuge Trails and a trail log sheet. Upon completion of the seven trails, you will receive a free Refuge Rambler Patch.
To register, complete the registration form (pdf) and mail it to Carmen Minch, 1 Marshlands Rd, Fremont, CA 94555. or email email@example.com with your name and address with the subject line "Rambler." In a couple of weeks, you will receive your packet.
To receive your patch, submit your trail log sheet to Carmen Minch (address listed above) before the year's end. If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 510/792-0222 ext. 476.
If you'd rather hike with a group, check out the April 19 Coyote Creek Lagoon walk scheduled for 11 a.m.

The migration is in full swing. This little brown job can be distinguished from other sparrows in the Bay Area by its dark back, spotted breast and one conspicuous spot on its breast. Look for them on the ground scratching for seeds.
