Join us for a brisk 45-minute "First Day" walk. Meet near Lifeguard Tower #11 and begin the walk north toward the Living Shoreline Project’s rare Sand Dune trail. We will walk toward Cardiff Reef and return along the beach, ending our walk at the tidepools near Tower 10. Low tide is scheduled for 2:06pm with a -.02 Ft. tide. The interpretive level is moderate. Staff will discuss the wildlife and plants that inhabit the sandy shore, while staying on the lookout for possible whale or dolphin sightings. If mobility is limited, meet us at the tide pools around 12:30pm.
