Every Thursday and Sunday our San Diego River Mouth Docents set up spotting scopes and an informational booth at the San Diego River Mouth, next to OB Dog Beach. Come and find out why this location is one of San Diego's Top 5 Best Birding Hotspots!

The San Diego Rivermouth is part of an Important Bird Area that features coastal wetland, sand dune, sage scrub, and mudflat habitats. Only 10% of habitats like this remain in California, and they are vital to the survival of species like Snowy Plovers, Ridgeway's Rail and Salt Marsh Bird's Beak. Join us in appreciation of this natural resource by coming out and saying hello to the River Mouth Docents. Please remember to keep yourself, your pets, and your children on trail at all times to ensure this space stays safe and restful for endangered species.
