Bike Tour of the Ballona Estuary

THE BALLONA WETLANDS ECOSYSTEM (see description, driving directions,
and reservation info below)
BIKE TOUR - Sunday, Nov 2, 9:00 - 11:00 am
9:00  - 11:00 am
Meet at Daniel's Bicycle Rental and Sales, 13737 Fiji Way (in Fisherman's Village) Marina del Rey, 310 980-4045
the corner of Lincoln & Jefferson, travel north on Lincoln – at the
first light, which is Fiji Way, go left. The shop is near the middle of
the row of brightly colored buildings on your right. If you are
traveling south on Lincoln, make a right on Fiji Way. (Fiji is the
southern-most street that crosses Lincoln, in Marina del Rey).
(Reservations requested - please see below)
and learn about much more of the Ballona Wetlands ecosystem than you
ever knew existed.   You will visit lagoons, grasslands, prairie
meadows, saltmarsh, estuary and dune areas - and also see former
marshlands now part of the Marina which still are home to a diversity
of marine and bird species.

& geographer Robert Roy van de Hoek will provide you with an
overview of the geography and natural history of this special place
along the Los Angeles coast.   You will be amazed at the wildlife you
will see when Roy is along to help open your eyes.   And you will never
visit this place again and see it in quite the same way.
reservations (which are requested), please call (310) 578-5888 and
leave information about how many people we can expect to join us and
leave your telephone number as well.  Bring water and hat (and curious
eyes and ears!), and wear comfortable, layered clothing for
unpredictable weather.
Ballona Institute coordinates these nature tours
