If you think that it's all about the birds, take a hike (literally). The Birds of Bolinas hike with David Wimpfheimer is a great way to see the huge array of birds that make their home in Marin, or are on their way up north post winter. The hike is Sunday March 17th from 9:30-3:30 pm. Meet at the big pullout across from the Stinson Beach school (just north of the town of Stinson Beach). 3805 California 1, Stinson Beach
