All ages are welcome for this unique experience with the Santa Monica and LA Audubon Societies. Explore the habitat and life cycles of the federally threatened Snowy Plover, a small white bird that makes Santa Monica and surrounding beach cities its home this time of year. Binoculars will be provided. The walk is free, but let us know you'll be joining us by making a reservation.
Please meet for the walk at the Guest Services office.
