The Amigos de Bolsa Chica's priority is to protect our community, and that includes all of our volunteers, members, visitors and loved ones.

While the parking lots at both the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and the State Beach have been reopened, the Last Saturday of the Month Bird Walk/Trash Cleanup, the First Saturday of the Month Tours, and FLOW Fridays remain cancelled until further notice.

Please check back here frequently for updates on when the we will be allowed to use the State Beach Visitors Center and when public gatherings are deemed safe for our volunteers and all participants in our education outreach efforts. Moving forward, we will also be following a strict regimen in order to maintain a clean and safe environment for learning and exploration.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you once we resume. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us: or
