Field Trip: Owl Walk at Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company

Date: Saturday September 23, 2017

Time: 5:30 PM

Looking for an evening with a really good possibility of seeing and hearing owls? Join us at Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company for an evening of socializing, birding, and specifically owling. (NSAS Event)


Leader: Jane Hicks

Description: We will meet at 5:30pm for mingling and a light snack with seasonal bruschetta, crostini, iced tea, and infused waters, then will walk through the olive groves looking for birds. We will have a good chance of seeing burrowing owls along the irrigation canal and will return to the house by sunset and watch the trees for barn owls. We will depart Il Fiorello by 8:30 pm, and those wanting more owling are invited to come along to Twin Sisters Road for possible western screech owls and great horned owl in Gordon Valley plus other possible stops.

There is a $10 charge for the walk. Space is limited to 15 participants and reservations are required. Contact Jane Hicks at or 707-553-8901 by Saturday, September 9, 2017 to reserve your space.

Bring: Sturdy walking shoes, water, binoculars, $10 fee for the event.

Il Fiorello’s shop will be open before the walk, so bring cash or credit card if you would like to purchase their milled-onsite local olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and other items.

Please note: This is a working farm and commercial food facility. The terrain is uneven and may have animal holes. Due to commercial food licensing requirements, no outside food may be brought into the property due to food safety concerns.

Directions: Driving directions will be provided upon registration.
