Guided Bird Walk


September 25, 2021 - 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

Pacific Beach

ROSE CREEK is a treasure in Pacific Beach, popular with Bikers on the East side, a quiet, shaded walking path on the West side. Once a month, on Saturday, Friends of Rose Creek lead a Guided Bird Walk along the Mud Flats, winding Estuary and into the Riparian area full of trees and song birds. With us every walk is Kyle a Birder that helps us spot birds and learn their calls and songs. Recently we’ve seen baby ducks, seagulls and Ospreys chicks. More unusual sightings; Northern Shoveler, Red Knot, and Black-headed Grosbeak. Join Kyle and Laurie at Mission Bay High Sch. FACULTY PARKING Lot along Rose Creek, off Grand Ave.


Mid September to Mid October are best days for bird migration in San Diego. On Rose Creek any day is good for treats and surprises. Sunset will be 6:45.


As of early July, no masks are required for small group outdoor events for anyone. However, we will continue to follow county guidelines that may change. Click here for details.


Anyone who develops COVID-19 within a few days of attending this event should notify the Friends of Rose Creek and/or other attendees as soon as possible. 


Please check the calendar a day before the event to insure that it is still happening.  Get out and spend some time with your creek!
