A bird-watching program led by naturalist Erica Stephens will also run at the same time at Las Trampas Regional Wilderness, focusing on information about birds of prey that live in the San Ramon park.

In the evening, the Tri-Valley Stargazers club will be supporting naturalist Alex Collins for a viewing at the Arroyo Road staging area of Del Valle Regional Park south of Livermore.
