ROSE CREEK is a treasure in Pacific Beach, popular with Bikers on the East side, a quiet, shaded walking path on the West side. Once a month, on Saturday, Friends of Rose Creek lead a Guided Bird Walk along the Mud Flats, winding Estuary and into the Riparian area full of trees and song birds.

Recently we’ve seen baby ducks, seagulls and Ospreys chicks. More unusual sightings; Northern Shoveler, Red Knot, and Black-headed Grosbeak.

Join the amazing Kyle at Mission Bay High School. FACULTY PARKING Lot along Rose Creek, off Grand Ave.

Sunset will be about 7:30 PM. You are free to leave the walk at any time.

DO NOT TURN ON LEE STREET. The parking lot is on Grand Avenue overlooking the creek with an open gate on it. This is the east end of campus.
