Turtle Trek at Los Cerritos Wetlands
October 2 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
The Los Cerritos Wetlands Land Trust offers free nature walks in the Long Beach/Seal Beach wetlands. The walks are the first Saturday of each month from 8 to 10 a.m. The walks are led by naturalists and are appropriate for age 7 and above. Closed-toed shoes are required. Parking is available on the inland side of the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and 1st Street, at the border of Long Beach and Seal Beach.
All walks focus on the history and future of the wetlands. Participants in the walks might see herons, hawks, hummingbirds and rabbits and will learn about native plants. The Raptor Ramble has information about how the Tongva Native Americans lived in and used the wetlands. The Heron Hike visits the Marketplace Marsh and ecologists discuss the reintroduction of tides and bringing water back into the land. Participants in the Turtle Trek hope for glimpses of the endangered Pacific Green Sea Turtles which have taken up residence in a portion of the San Gabriel River.
The Oct. 2 hike is the Turtle Trek. For more information or to RSVP contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about the wetlands at www.lcwlandtrust.org.
