We were treated to a beautiful, sunny day. While many in the group have been meeting via Zoom regularly since April of 2020, only a few have seen each other in person. There was much to catch up on, and much to see in the walk to the first overlook. A Shovelnose Guitar Fish was spotted in the eelgrass, and dozens of recently hatched California Least Terns were among the highlights. Once at the overlook, we discussed new programs (Live from the Wetlands and Informal Friday Bird Walks), current summer activities (see page 2), and the return of First Saturday of the Month Free Public Tours (starting August 7), and Last Saturday of the Month Bird Walks and Trash Cleanups (July 31). Private scheduled tours are availabe again, and the Amigos now have the ability to accomodate educators virtually and in-person. FLOW will also be resuming in the coming weeks. Discussion on how activities will be conducted as programs resume was enthusiastic and productive. The second “Get Reacquainted Tour” is being held on June 26 as this issue of the Tern Tide is published. Photos by Thomas Anderson.
