Search Chula Vista California

Located on the last salt marsh in San Diego Bay, the nature center has an interactive aquarium and terrarium exhibits that display native species. Pet sharks and rays, talk to burrowing owls, and watch birds from the trails.

The Nature Center offers a rare and seldom seen view into the natural history and ecology of California wetlands. This living museum serves the public with educational programs and exhibits. They are leading the way in the restoration, preservation and enhancement of the surrounding wetlands. From the observation tower and deck, you can witness the daily lives of more than 215 species of birds-some are endangered and all are beautiful. To view these birds bring your binoculars or rent a pair at the center's bookstore. Take a walk on the bilingual interpretive trails within the National Wildlife Refuge.
