I am a big fan of the Audubon Canyon Ranch at Bolinas, CA. It’s a peaceful place, where visitors can view the nesting sites of the Great Blue Heron, Great Egret and the Snowy Egret. Kids also love the ponds full of wildlife.
For the 2009 season, the 1,000-acre Bolinas Lagoon Preserve will open from March 14 to July 12, 2009, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Weekday access is available by appointment.
Admission to the preserve is free, though a suggested donation of $15 is appreciated.
