Birdwatching at lagoon

Avid birder Dave Batzler will conduct a program from 8 to 9:30 a.m. April 10 and 24 at the San Dieguito Lagoon, as the San Dieguito River Park begins free public birdwatching sessions to encourage birders from all backgrounds to share their love of birds. Participants should bring binoculars, cameras, and water to drink. No reservations are necessary.

Park near the trailhead at the end of San Andres Drive, behind the Albertson’s Shopping Mall off Via de la Valle. Meet at the information kiosk at the start of the trail. There is parking along the street, which is a cul-de-sac. For more details, visit
