1690 Seacoast Drive, 91932, GPS: 32.5665, -117.1325
Leader: Peter Thomas, (858) 571-5076, and others
This is a nice walk along the beach, starting from the southernmost end of Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach, and proceeding south to the mouth of the Tijuana River. We will look for remaining winter shorebirds and those birds that have arrived for the Summer. Special target birds will be Least Terns and Western Snowy Plovers. Finding the bits of kelp, mollusks, and other marine life that have washed up along the shore is an added attraction. Restrooms are available at the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center. Participation is capped at 20.
Directions: From I-5 going south, exit at Palm Avenue, and go west. Proceed through Imperial Beach, following the signs for Palm Avenue to the left, as Highway 75 forks off to the right. Proceed to Seacoast Drive, turn left (south), and drive to the end of the road and park. Meet at the marsh overlook platform.
