California Trails

Now's the Time for Baby Birds, Wildflowers on Marin Hikes

Here's where to go for baby birds, blooming succulents, and butterflies.

This month, hikers should be able to spot a number of baby birds around Marin County, including common murres and California quail at Point Reyes and mallard ducks on the Palomarin Trail. More June natural wonders: blooming sand verbena at Abbotts Lagoon and rock lettuce at Cascade Canyon Open Space, plus swallowtail butterflies at Tomales Bay State Park.
