Family Fun Days

Co-Presented By:
San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | San Diego County Parks & Recreation

Each month, kids learn about lagoon life through hands-on fun, craft making, discovery stations and animal encounters. We give nature the spotlight and invite our younger generations to explore the world outdoors with Conservancy naturalists, County Parks rangers and families. Adventure-filled Family Fun Days includes TRACK Trails activity guides and the opportunity to earn a Junior Ranger Badge.
