Seal Watch – Carpinteria
March 5, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
What: Docent-led visit to the Carpinteria Seal Sanctuary https://carpinteriasealwatch.org/ . At this time, the seals should be pupping.
Where: Meet in the parking lot off of Bailard Ave. And then we will walk together to the bluff where we will meet the docent and view the seals.
When: Meet in Parking Lot at 10:40, we are scheduled to meet the docent on the bluff at noon. Arrive earlier if you want to use a restroom before we start. There is a restroom at the neighboring park/softball fields.
Who: ACHEV members all ages
Sign Up Here. Max 25 people
Optional After the Field Trip: Please join us for a picnic lunch and playing around on the beach right next to the seal watch area. There will be a negative tide at 12:42 pm so it will be a perfect time to explore tidepools! Bring an easy lunch that won’t be too burdensome to carry in a backpack.
We ask that you talk with the kids before arriving so that they understand when viewing wildlife in their natural setting, it’s important to be calm and use calm voices. It can be pretty exciting for them. The volunteers will help with giving them a friendly, gentle reminder, if needed. Also, we are up on a high bluff, so we ask for parents to really watch the kids
Dogs are not permitted, they scare the seals.
