Guided Nature Walk:
Raptor Ramble

Saturday, May 4, 2019
8:00AM - 10:00AM

Close-toed shoes required. Also, good treads on shoes are best after rains. And kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to RSVP, email

Our walk begins with a brief orientation to our wetlands.  We will discuss their history—especially the long process to make public the Hellman portion. We will then walk on the main (oil) road, where we will look for wading birds in the tidal pools on our left. Then we will turn off the main road to view the tidal channel that flows through this section of Los Cerritos Wetlands. Here we will pause to look and listen for Belding’s Savannah Sparrows. Then we will mount to the Heron Pointe cultural trail. At the visitor circle we will discuss the native peoples of the area. To return, we usually walk close to Gum Grove Park and look for raptors nesting in the trees. Bring binoculars, if you have them; we will observe many different kinds of interesting wildlife.

Where: Meet in the driveway/parking area at the corner of 1st Street and PCH in Seal Beach. There will be signs.
