Meet at PCH and First Street, border of Seal Beach/LB. Turn inland, park off asphalt. This is one of two chances each month to enter the locked gated property and look for bird species inhabiting this small tidal marsh and coastal sage scrub upland habitat restoration off of the San Gabriel River. This area of the wetlands features DG trails, interpretive signage, and a small native plant nursery. This is a good opportunity to explore and observe the habitat and creatures that roam the wetlands area the last two hours before sunset.
Los Cerritos Wetlands is part of the Orange Coast Audubon Important Bird Area which also includes Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, Bolsa Chica, Huntington Wetlands and Newport Bay, a string of critical urban wetlands habitats. This walk is in partnership with the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Stewardship Program.
Please bring binoculars if you have them, recommended to bring water, hat, sun-screen. Closed-toed shoes are required. Rain or shine. No prior birding experience is necessary. Family friendly event.
** Note this walk is scheduled for 3rd Saturday in May to adjust for the holiday **
