Many of you know that the Living Coast Discovery Center is dedicated to preserving our native plants and animals, but did you know that we have several Endangered Species right here in San Diego?

We do!

From the well known Pacific Green Sea Turtle to the lessor known, but just as important Salt-Marsh Birds Beak (a plant) we'd like to dedicate an entire weekend to celebrate these species and bring awareness to their plight.

Friday, May 16 at 8pm
Presentation by U.S. Fish & Wildlife about our native endangered species followed by a visit to Sea Turtle Lagoon and an easy sunset trail walk to the Bay. This event is complimentary but limited to the first 100 registrations. Register for this event!

Saturday, May 17 & Sunday, May 18 from 10am-5pm
Endangered Species Day scavenger hunts; themed arts and crafts; kid's coloring contest (win a VIP animal encounter); flora and fauna endangered species presentations; and family fun and games, including a story time.

ALL Weekend (May 16-18)
The San Diego Botanic Gardens will offer free admission to San Diego Audubon Society Members and Living Coast Discovery Center Members Friday, May 16– Sunday, May 18, and San Diego Botanic Garden members will receive free admission to Living Coast Discovery Center May 16 – 18!

San Diego Botanic Garden will celebrate Endangered Species Day by providing guests with activities such as: a map guiding visitors to some of our notable endangered species-both native and from other parts of the world, signs with QR Codes at those locations which will direct visitors to additional information and photos. Garden tours will be offered throughout the day. The San Diego Audubon Society will be provide birding tours Friday and Saturday at 8:00 am, and will discuss the importance of habitat preservation for species survival.
