Enjoy an easy walk along East Beach to the Bird Refuge and along the shoreline below Santa Barbara Cemetery with expert Susie Bartz. Scheduled to take advantage of low tide, explore three different watersheds— Mission, La Laguna, and Sycamore -- their place in our urban landscape and the natural watercourses they represent. We’ll consider the geologic processes—as well as the human impacts that have shaped the beach, the cemetery hill, and the old estuary that became today’s Bird Refuge. Mostly an easy walk on sand at low tide, about 3 miles round trip.
