Join us on the third Sunday of the month, starting at 8:00 a.m., for our Monthly Bird Walks led by local birder Rick Grove. Our bird walks take place along our different Discovery Center trails located around the beautiful Agua Hedionda Lagoon. Birders meet at the Discovery Center and caravan over together.
Rick has a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and Economics, as well as a Master's Degree in Education, and has been an avid bird watchers since 1983. Additionally, he is a member of the San Diego Field Ornithologists. In 2015, he observed an outstanding 300 species of birds in San Diego alone!
Our Monthly Bird Walks are freely open to the public with no registration necessary.
New! Interactive Naturalist App
The AHLF Naturalist mapping app is a new tool for hikers and citizen-scientists to use on the trail. The app, easy accessed by any smart device with internet access, allows the user to identify flora/fauna around the Agua Hedionda Lagoon and submit their data for analysis by the foundation. This community derived data not only provides users with a digital keepsake, it can be used to accurately project the spread of invasive plant species, plant community boundary lines, and sites of threatened species. Armed with this knowledge, environmental agencies have a springboard for more rigorous studies, without the need for large, expensive surveys. Stop by the Discovery Center to learn more and to participate in this unique opportunity.
All directions start at Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Discovery Center.
