FAIRFIELD — A bird-of-prey migration hike will take place Sept. 8 at Lynch Canyon Open Space park.
The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Larry Broderick and the Solano Land Trust raptor team will be the leaders. Previous sightings on the property include golden eagles, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, Cooper’s hawks, sharp-shinned hawks, ferruginous hawks, peregrine falcons and prairie falcons.
Hikers must be prepared to cover four miles at a moderate pace and possibly go off-trail in places. They will meet in the Lynch Canyon parking lot off. They should bring $5 for parking, a backpack with water and snacks, boots or sturdy shoes, long pants and layered clothing and protection from the weather, be it sun, wind, fog or rain, according to a Solano Land Trust press release.
