Search for Sea Turtles

Price
FREE
When
Saturday, Dec. 7 (8am—10am)
Where
Hellman Ranch Wetlands
1st St. & Pacific Coast Highway
7143578576

Event Description

It is hard to believe that we have a group of sea turtles living amidst our Long Beach wetlands.

A group of endangered Pacific Green Sea Turtles has taken up residence in a portion of the San Gabriel River. These turtles are an ancient species, dating as far back as 30 million years ago.

Green sea turtles usually live in tropical or subtropical regions. They may grow up to 5 feet long and may weigh as much as 500 pounds. Mature green sea turtles are usually found in shallow coastal waters with sea grass beds.

Two wetlands ecologists will lead a walk of the Los Cerritos Wetlands on Saturday, December 7th from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Participants will explore the salt marshes and hope for a glimpse of the sea turtles.

The tour begins on the inland side of the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and 1st Street, just at the border of Long Beach and Seal Beach.

There is ample parking.

The hike is appropriate for ages seven and up. For more information or to RSVP for the December 7th walk, contact Elizabeth at ejlambe@verizon.net. Learn more about the wetlands at www.lcwlandtrust.org.

For more information, please visit our website or call (714) 357-8576 or e-mail us at ejlambe@verizon.net.
