Get to know the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge (a part of the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve) by joining the US Fish & Wildlife Service education staff on a 2 mile walk out to the Tijuana river mouth!
Wildlife Watching stations will be set up with binoculars provided to see the beautiful birds like terns that migrate here for the summer, or those who live here year-round, like pelicans. We might even see jack rabbits or coyotes if we're lucky! The walks will start at 9:15 am, 9:30 am (in Spanish) and 9:45 am.
Family-friendly. The dirt trail is level and stroller-friendly.
For those who would prefer an indoor educational experience, the Tijuana Estuary's monthly Speaker Series will be from 10-11am by fellow Latino and researcher, Dr. Julio Lorda, on the benefits of the Tijuana River Estuary to humans and animals at the Visitor Center at 301 Caspian Way, Imperial Beach. There's something for everyone!
Water and refreshments provided by the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges. Event coordinated in partnership with the Hispanic Access Foundation.
