Studio City lovers invited to get back to nature together

February 10, 2014 by  

For those lovers looking for a different way to spend their time together this Valentine’s Day, Mountains Recreation and & Conservation Authority (MRCA) is offering a good alternative—a bird watching tour that will emphasis techniques local birds use to keep warm during the cooler months.

Couples (or any other adults that wish to come along) are invited to take a 25-minute drive up to Towsley Canyon. Once there, an MRCA volunteer will guide those in attendance around the park with an emphasis on bird-watching. When birds are spotted, the guide will identify which kind it is and explain what sort of techniques the particular bird uses to survive the cold winter months.

The trip should prove ideal for those couples looking to get away from the city for a few hours, to simply enjoy one another’s company in the great outdoors. Attendees should bring binoculars if they have them, and a camera, since high-definition images can be used for framed poster printing at a later date.

The MRCA is a local governmental agency, and its mission is to assist with the preservation of parklands in the Santa Monica Mountains.

Winter Weather and Bird Behavior will be held at Saturday, February 15 at Towsley Canyon State Park, 24335 The Old Road, Newhall, California, at 8:00 am. Attendance is free, though there will be a $7 parking fee.
