Guided Walk Around Rose Creek

June 19, 2021 - 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Pacific Beach

Learn about the native plants and animals that co-exist in this beautiful estuary where fresh water and tidal salt waters meet.

It is our understanding that by June 19th, the State of California will be fully open. However, we will wait to post updates on the event once that happens. However, as of today, here are the rules:

Twenty-five people maximum. Masks required for those who have not been fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your second shot of the two dose regime, 2 weeks after your single dose shot of J&J). No sharing of binoculars with people outside your household.  If you do not wear a mask, please practice social distancing to protect yourself and others. The science is not in on transmission of COVID-19 of fully vaccinated individuals. Anyone who develops COVID-19 within 48 hours after attending a gathering 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!

Rose Creek is a hidden treasure in Pacific Beach, a quiet, peaceful stroll under the hanging Eucalyptus trees that line the walking path on the west side and the bike path on the east side. You might see or hear the Osprey Family, Kingfisher, Great Blue Heron, Hawk, Egrets, and the mud feeders; Plovers, Willits, Sandpipers and ducks.

Wear sturdy shoes, bring binoculars and your camera or smart phone and a coat. Suitable for all ages. We will be walking on mostly flat paved and dirt trails. We meet at the Mission Bay High School Faculty parking lot off Grand Ave and next to the of Rose Creek looking downstream from Garnet Avenue
