Upper Carr Lake824 E. Laurel Dr.Salinas, CA 93905


Experienced birders and novices alike are invited to join Return of the Natives (R.O.N.) at Upper Carr Lake for the Winter Bird Count! Last year, we identified 72 bird species.

Why count birds? The quantity and diversity of birds helps us to assess the success of our ongoing habitat restoration work. It’s a really fun way to learn more about local species and the restoration process! Bird count will be 7am-10am.

After 10am, volunteers are invited to help cleanup the natural waterways and area around Upper Carr Lake. R.O.N. events are a great way to learn more about where you live, meet new people, earn community service hours, and help protect our clean water supply.

Everyone is welcome! A great family activity that is FREE. Tools, water, and great snacks provided. Wear sturdy footwear and plenty of layers. Bring your community service forms to earn hours.

Directions: Upper Carr Lake is located on East Laurel Drive between Constitution and Sanborn Rd. in Salinas. Look for the R.O.N. community event signs! (Use 824 E. Laurel Dr., Salinas for Google Maps)
