Los Angeles Page

February 12,2000 - Take the 405 Fwy south from LA and exit west on Seal Beach Blvd. Go south on Pacific Coast Hwy turning left on Warner to the Interpretive Center (see Bolsa Chica Conservancy). There buy the colorful, laminated Local Shore & Water Bird guide for $8 and look at their modest but friendly displays. BRING BINOCULARS!
