Hike and Get to Know the River Mouth
at the Tijuana Estuary
in Celebration of Latino Conservation Week!

Saturday, July 18th 
9:00 - 11:00am
Meets at 5th St. & Iris Avenue, Imperial Beach, CA 
(in order to avoid traffic from the Sun & Sea Festival, please enter at Connecticut Street from Imperial Beach Blvd.)


Get to know the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge (a part of the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve) by joining our 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, 9:30 (exclusively in Spanish), and 9:45am. Family-friendly. The dirt trail is fairly flat 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 (i.e. "Ecosystem Services") of the Tijuana River Estuary at the Visitor Center (see article below). There's something for everyone!

Water and refreshments provided by the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges.
