Accessible Birding and Lunch
Bolsa Chica, Thursday, January 11th at 2:00 pm
Sea and Sage Audubon is sponsoring an accessible “Birding and Snack” event at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington Beach on Thursday, January 11th at 2 pm. Note the starting time is later than usual to coincide with a very low tide for best viewing. Bolsa Chica is one of the premier birding locations in southern California, and in the winter features a wide variety of waterbirds. We will start birding from the inner bay footbridge, which goes over water and mudflats and is adjacent to the Reserve’s south parking lot. The bridge is flat and long, providing ample area for viewing over the inner Bolsa Bay. From the bridge, we will continue to walk on a wide hardpacked trail less than 0.2 miles to view additional bird colonies at the full tidal basin, which connects to the ocean. At the basin, we will enjoy a snack together and discuss the various species we observed. There is no cost or parking fee for this event, but reservations are required. E-mail Sharon Rockwell at email@example.com to register. Sharon will return your email with specific directions to our gathering.
