Senior Stroll: Santa Margarita Island

This small preserve, which is surrounded by the tidally influenced South Fork of Las Gallinas Creek, is an ideal spot for a relaxed summer walk. The oak-covered hill which rises in the center of the island is encircled by a short (.3 mile) loop trail that follows the edge of the salt marsh. We'll take advantage of this level, dirt pathway to discuss the plants and animals that can be found in each of these habitats.

Remember to bring binoculars if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

Air Quality Index (AQI) that exceeds 150 on, or other extreme weather may cancel events. Check the calendar or call (415) 473-6086 after 8 am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if canceled.
