Wings Over Wetlands Family Discovery Days


One of San Diego’s largest coastal wetlands, the 979-acre San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, is host to visitors each winter that fly in from distant shores. Each year at least a billion birds migrate along the Pacific Flyway, which stretches from the North Slope of Alaska to Central and South America. It’s an ideal time to visit local wetlands to see birds in action. At San Elijo Lagoon, the annual Wings Over Wetlands is an all-ages celebration that connects visitors to the beauty and wonder of local and visiting birds.

Wings Over Wetlands Family Discovery Days was held Jan. 24-25 at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center. Participants had the opportunity to enjoy bird-themed crafts, face painting, interactive stations, and live raptor presentations.
