Coyote Nights: Technology and the Outdoors

August 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join San Mateo County Parks Foundation and REI for our park mixer: Coyote Nights!

We invite you to come hang out with us and make new friends, sip wine or local beer from Devil’s Canyon Brewery and learn more about the parks. Kick back in an REI-designed outdoor lounge, and enjoy Coyote Point as your day winds down. What a perfect way to enjoy summer!

Coyote Nights Special Guest: Raptors at Coyote Point!

 Master Falconer Kenny Elvin

Master Falconer Kenny Elvin has been doing falconry for 16 years and he will bring several birds of prey to Coyote Point:

  • Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal on the planet.
  • Great Horned Owls are an amazing resource helping control our rat and mouse populations. Think twice before using pesticides to control pests. Apex predators are having issues with our habits.
  • Harris Hawk(s) from our Southern Desert region through Mexico, Central and South America
  • Laughing Kookaburra – largest of the king fisher group of birds. This iconic bird is shaped like our belted king fisher
