Wetlands of Watsonville

ID : 7166   
« back to classes page
The recently established Watsonville Wildlife Area is known for muskrat sightings, is a great place for bird watching, and is home to over 23 species whose survival is in danger - including the peregrine falcon and osprey. In the cool and clear winter months there are a wide variety of water bird species, and during your morning walk your expert guide will review the in-depth biology and migratory patterns of each species you encounter - like a verbal version of a bird book and wildlife guide!  

There are plenty of walking trails that offer easy-access, comfortable wildlife watching on a paved lakeside trail. The trail is a level, paved walkway with benches and beautiful views. This South Santa Cruz County Park is part of the recently established Watsonville Wildlife Area, and is one of the largest remaining freshwater marshes on the central coast. Spend the morning enjoying the beautiful location, while you learn about the fascinating local creatures that call the Central Coast home.

Please see the Cabrillo Extension website for a detailed map with directions to the meeting place.
