Miracles of the Marsh
“Miracles of the Marsh” is our 3rd grade elementary school educational program which brings children from more than a dozen cities to Bolsa Chica for a walking tour in this living classroom. The program includes a field guide and resources for teachers, a power point presentation at each school prior to the field trip, a full color workbook for each student, and our docent-led tour of Bolsa Chica with emphasis on plant life, wildlife, history, and water quality. Thanks to our membership and corporate partner’s generosity, the Trust is able to assist with bus transportation costs.
The program runs from January to June each year and we are always looking for interested individuals to join our Docent Team. Training begins in September. It’s fun.
The children and teachers love to learn about this precious resource in the midst of our urban environment. For more information call the Land Trust office (714) 846-1001.
Bolsa Chica Tours
Join us on the second and third Sunday of each month for a free guided walking tour of the Bolsa Chica wetlands and mesa. Learn about the history of Bolsa Chica, its wildlife, and plant life with a Bolsa Chica Land Trust docent. Literature and merchandise is also available. The two-hour tour begins at 10 a.m. from the Ecological Reserve South parking lot on Pacific Coast Highway across from Bolsa Chica State Beach (on PCH between Warner Avenue and Seapoint Street). Look for the white canopy and tables at the back of the lot by the footbridge, which is where you will meet the docent. Wear comfortable shoes and sun protection, and be sure to bring binoculars or a camera! For more information call or email the BCLT office.
