Amigos de Bolsa Chica's Virtual Wetland Tour
To learn more about how the Amigos de Bolsa Chica began it's journey in the 1970s to protect, preserve and restore the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, watch this short film, Saving the Bolsa Chica Wetlands.
While all Amigos de Bolsa Chica education efforts are free of charge, we ask for your help by making a donation of any amount. The programs on this page are part of the our COVID-19 response and your financial support will help the Amigos de Bolsa Chica reach under served students and create other incentives for learning more about our precious environment.
If you are looking for ways to both educate and entertain young minds during this time the Amigos are unable to give in-person tours, you might be interested in the Amigos de Bolsa Chica's Coastal Wetlander Activity Book. Filled with fascintating information, activities, puzzles, photos and illustrations about the ecology, birds, history, endangered species and restoration of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, the Coastal Wetlander Activity Book is a joy for children and adults alike.
To become a "Coast Wetlander" is a serious honor, so once the interested participant has taken a tour of the wetlands and completed as many activities as possible, had his or her work checked and the certificate at the back of the book signed by an Amigos naturalist, he or she will receive a beautiful Coastal Wetlander patch. Those who complete and submit a poster will see it displayed here on the Amigos' website.

The Amigos de Bolsa Chica relies on your generous help to continue to be able to offer these free education programs.
