  • This reserved is at then end of a quiet neighborhood. There's a small parking lot and some street parking. At the side of the parking lot there's a small ranger building with some information. Next to the station it's a public restroom. Be mindful of the rules when here. This is a reserve. You do not touch the wildlife, take anything, including shells, rocks, and sea creatures. I definitely recommend waterproof boots. If you can, join a decent lead tour. I got to come in a group that had a docent, geologist and a naturalist. We were told of a fossil ranging 2.5 to 5 million years old is here.
  • what a great way to engage kids in the science of tide pools! best to go about 30 min before low tide. wear water shoes but take great care not to step on anything.
