Come Out to Love Your Wetlands Day 2017

Come on out to the eleventh annual “Love Your Wetlands Day” which will be held on February 4, 2017 from 9am till 4pm. 

This means enjoying the Kendall-Frost/Northern Wildlife Reserve in the northwest corner of Mission Bay Park – it’s the only remaining saltwater wetland in Mission Bay and is normally closed to the public due to its fragile nature.

The Reserve is at 2055 Pacific Beach Drive in Pacific Beach.

This annual event is one of the few opportunities for the public to actually visit the wetland. You can learn about the marsh and its inhabitants, enjoy the environment in your backyard, see some restoration in process, participate in interactive booths, see animal presentations, learn about possible wetland expansions, enjoy a raffle, and walk in the marsh.

There will be a set of morning activities, roughly 9am till noon and a repeat from 1pm till 4pm with some presentations in between.

If you are interested in marsh walks be prepared for somewhat strenuous exercise, bring rubber boots if you have them and expect to get muddy. Even if you are not interested in the marsh walks wear sturdy foot ware as the area around the UCSD trailer is rough. Children need to be at least eight years old for marsh walking.

If you love your wetlands, the wetlands of dog beach are inundated with litter from the king tides and Storms. Worst I’ve seen it in years. I keep removing one bag of trash at a time when I’m free but it’s overwhelming. Probably 100 bags worth of trash right now in that small area. If you have half an hour, bring a bag and gloves and head down.
