14th Annual International Migratory Bird Day, Saturday, May 10

14th Annual International Migratory Bird Day at Muir Woods, Saturday, May 10, 8 AM - 2 PM. Take the Muir Woods Shuttle, and have a carefree day all about the birds. http://www.marintransit.org/routes/66.html.

Every day at Muir Woods, the birds enrich our lives with their sound and beauty that when they're audibly absent for a season or delayed in their migration, they are sorely missed until they appear. Hundreds of thousands of birds complete the fabric of our lives with the benefits they provide us including inspiration in the arts, pest control, pollination, revegetation, and helping us monitor the health of our world.

Eco-Friendly Garden Tour May 17 in Sonoma-Marin

Eco-Friendly Garden Tour
Presented by the Sonoma-Marin Water Saving Partnership
Tour to feature over 10 gardens from Novato to Windsor on Saturday, May 17th from 10am – 4:00 pm.

The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is a free self-guided tour highlighting sustainable gardening practices that are sensitive to the local environment and current drought conditions. The gardens on the tour are designed to conserve water and protect local watersheds and the bay.

Eco-Friendly Garden Tour for Novato and Sonoma County
Saturday, May 17, 2014
10am – 4pm
PLEASE SIGN UP for the GARDEN TOUR online at:
www.savingwaterpartnership.org
www.nmwd.com

At each garden a professional landscape designer or homeowner will provide information on the garden and answer questions. The tour features drought tolerant gardens including native plant & habitat gardens, a new garden converted from a lawn, low-maintenance gardens, gardens under large oak trees, and gardens with permeable paving as the hardscape. All gardens have a wide selection of plants that require less water, use more efficient irrigation systems and were created using sustainable garden processes.

According to Gregory Plumb of the Sonoma County Water Agency, “This year’s Tour showcases gardens ranging from the luxury to the humble; they all utilize environmentally sensitive landscape practices. I am particularly excited about the gardens that feature rainwater harvesting and gray-water systems.”

The Garden Tour in its fourth year is part of a public outreach and education program to promote sustainable gardening practices and provide inspiration for homeowners to reduce their water needs for their gardens. Many of the presentations at the gardens will share good examples of Russian River-Friendly and Bay Friendly landscaping principles.

Events at Novato Garden Tour sites:
11:30 am: Create a Garden with very Low Water Needs Garden Tour by Alison Blume
St. Clare at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 967 Fifth Avenue, Novato, CA

1 pm: Sheet-Mulching Demonstration, Charlotte Torgovitsky. Off Olive, Novato

2 pm: Top 5 Native Plants For Your Garden,Charlotte Torgovitsky, off Olive, Novato,

All day: Bel Marin Keys Contemporary Garden by the Water designed by Eileen Kelly, Dig Your Garden

Why the tour ?
Several consecutive dry years on top of the driest year on record in 2013 have culminated into drought conditions in the region. Despite recent rain, rainfall and water supply levels in both Lake Mendocino and Lake Sonoma remain below average. For more tips on what you can do to help conserve water:

About
The purpose of the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership is to establish the financial obligation for the eight local water utilities, Marin Municipal Water District and Sonoma County Water Agency, identify and recommend implementation of water conservation projects and to maximize the cost-effective projects for the Partnership.
http://www.savingwaterpartnership.org/partner/

About the Partnership

Sonoma County Water Agency operates and maintains a water supply and transmission system that provides water to eight local water utilities, including Cotati, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Windsor, North Marin Water District, and Valley of the Moon Water District in addition to providing supplemental water to Marin Municipal Water District. The Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership represents these 10 water utilities.

Each member of the Partnership is a signatory to the California Urban Water Conservation Council (CUWCC) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The CUWCC was created to assist in increasing water conservation statewide, under a MOU. As signatories to the MOU, the Partners have pledged good faith effort towards implementing Best Management Practices (BMP) s identified in the CUWCC MOU Regarding Urban Water Conservation.

The Partners recognize that establishing common water conservation projects on a regional basis and applicable across the political and jurisdictional boundaries of each party may be a means of cost effectively conserving more water than would otherwise be conserved on an individual agency-by-agency basis.
To celebrate Why Birds Matter, Muir Woods joins communities across the nation with its 14th Annual International Migratory Day in hope of borderless migration routes. Get up early and go birding at Muir Beach with local bird experts or stay up late for the Owl Wars night walk in Muir Woods (RSVP required). Nature Sounds Society Dan Dugan and Sharon Perry will share with you a gorgeous audio of birds recorded in the Woods the night before. Go on a nature sounds escape with audio artist Gina Farr. See wild birds up close at a mist netting and bird banding research station with Point Blue scientists, learn bird tracking and telemetry with the Pinnacles Condor Program, and engage with a festival of exhibitors from Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, Wildcare, Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, Wild Equity, Chico State, Presidio Nursery, Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge, Audubon Canyon Ranch, and the River Otter Ecology Project. Make bird masks and bird mobiles with the family and test your Bird IQ.

Bring the whole family for this free event in front of the Muir Woods Visitor Center (entrance fee applies to enter the Woods). Hop on board the Migration Mobile for a morning of fun throughout the lower Redwood Creek Watershed. Programs featured in Spanish. View a map of nationwide IMBD festivities at birdday.org.
