Location:  San Lorenzo River Walk (various locations)

This series of FREE walks hosted by the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History and Coastal Watershed Council aims to connect Santa Cruzans with the San Lorenzo River and its wildlife. Join expert birders, wildlife specialists, and fisheries biologists on guided walks along the river, to learn, enjoy a new perspective on the river, and connect with this beautiful natural resource in our own back yards. At the culmination of these walks we will celebrate Earth Day with a citizen science “BioBlitz” to capture biodiversity data along the river.
