FLOW Fridays, all private scheduled tours, the First Saturday of the Month Tour and the Last Saturday of the Month Bird Walk/Trash Cleanup are suspended until further notice so as to avoid exposing our volunteers and tour participants to COVID-19.

Please check back here frequently for updates on when the California Department of Fish & Wildlife allows us to conduct activities at the wetlands, and California State Parks allow us use the State Beach Visitors Center for FLOW activities. 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: info@amigosdebolsachica.org or flow@amigosdebolsachica.org.

2 Rules to Protect Our Wildlife and Your Children

Because the Amigos de Bolsa Chica cares about wetland habitat and wildlife, everything at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is protected. Please review our two rules with your students BEFORE your visit to Bolsa Chica. Teachers, aides and parents are all responsible for ensuring that children obey the rules at all times. We want you to have a wonderful experience with nature! Thank you!

Rule #1: Respect the wildlife in their home

  • Use a quiet voice at all times
  • Stay on the trails
  • Do not pick any plants
  • Do not harm any insects
  • Dogs, horses, drones and bicycles are not permitted in the Ecological Reserve
  • Carry any trash you generate out of the wetlands with you

Rule #2: Listen to and obey your tour leader

  • Only 1 person talks at a time
  • When your tour leader is talking, you listen
  • Raise your hand to speak
  • Stay behind the tour leader on the trails
  • Follow instructions
