CA State Park interpreter, Laura Dulin, will be leading a small group of people on a bike tour of the South San Diego Bay. You will learn a little bit about the “secret” history of the area, as well as learning about different little-known animals that live in the bay. The bike tour will be starting at the Silver Strand State Beach RV check-in kiosk area, then we will bike together and make 3 interpretive stops along the way. The first will be on the bayside of Silver Strand State Beach, and the additional two stops will be south of the Coronado Cays development near the Bayshore Bikeway Parking Lot. The distance we cover will be about 5 miles. Please let the interpreter know if you have any questions or concerns. (The interpreter can be found at the locations and times of the listed programs Th-Sat. You can email for more information. Please give time for a response since the interpreters working schedule is TH-Sat.)
