Description

The Estero Americano Preserve features rare coastal prairie with panoramic views of the estuary and surrounding hills — perfect habitat for a variety of high-flying raptors, long-legged shorebirds and graceful waterfowl who call this landscape home. If we’re lucky, we may even catch a glimpse of the rare white pelicans or river otters who frequent this area.
