Marshes are more than mud. Step out into nature at the Salinas de San Pedro salt marsh. Bring your binoculars, camera, sketch pad, journal or just your curiosity! Discover the many animal residents of the salt marsh with guidance from Sea Ranger naturalists and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium Education staff.
Watch for resident and migratory birds, fish and other inhabitants as you observe tidal changes. Learn about native wetlands, coastal sage scrub and the benefits of native plants.
While you’re here visit the aquarium exhibit hall, exploration center, aquatic nursery, outdoor tidepool touch tank and then relax for a bit in the Virginia Reid Moore Marine Research Library. Also, plan to stop by CMA’s volunteer-run gift shop for a wide selection of gifts and books.
CMA is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and is open to the public on weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday from 12 noon to 5.
