SDRVC Sunset Herp Hike with Expert Jeff Nordland!

October 19, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Celebrate National Reptile Awareness Day with SDRVC and expert guide, Jeff Nordland, with a sunset herp hike at Bernardo Bay!
SDRVC and expert guide Jeff Nordland will be celebrating National Reptile Awareness Day with a sunset herp hike at Bernardo Bay!  Jeff will be leading particpants on an easy/moderate hike around Bernardo Bay in search of San Diego native herps. These species are important in the life cycle, as they are both predators and sometimes prey for our raptors.

The group will be meeting near the front entrance of the parking lot, and promptly begin after a brief safety talk. If needed, there is a portable restroom that may be used prior to the hike.

IMPORTANT NOTES: This hike is best suited for ages 8 years old and up. Please be prepared to hike at a liesurely pace in the hopes the group will see and identify native herps. In addition, come prepared with adequate hiking/ running shoes, pants (no shorts), a snack, sun protection, and water. If you have binoculars, we also encourage you to bring those, though they are not required.

Lastly, the sun is expected to set shortly after 6pm. We should return back to the Staging Area by 6:30pm with the remaining sunlight. However, it is recommended to bring a flashlight, headlamp, or use the flashlight on your phone, just in case.

Registration is limited, and required. Please email SDRVC Education Manager, Ana Lutz-Johnson, at or call 858 755 6956 with any questions.

We can’t wait to see you there!
