Great place! Small intimate and extremely educational! My eight year old loves this place! Especially the trailit allows him to transform into a mini scientist! He goes out and explores for hours!!!

Bring a sack lunch. The snack bar is just that. Also, you may have to fight day camps or field trips for seating when you want to eat lunch. There was an area blocked off for that. I have no problem with that. The problem I had was that reserved place was empty. The space for regular visitors next to that reserved space was being used by a school group. It was a bit annoying that paying guests had to wait for the school group to leave and a mystery why they weren't using the space closed off to us. My only real complaint is the lack of picnic tables and eating space that non school groups can use during the lunch hour.

You might bring water and a snack to do some of the hiking trails.

Be prepared to be bused to the site from the parking lot. Check the feeding schedule in advance so you can view shark, turtle, and/or eagle feeding during your visit.

From Our Editors

Step into to a bird's house. Get eye-to-eye with a moray eel. Greet a sea turtle as he swims up to say hello. The Living Coast Discovery Center isn't a nature museum—it's a chance to hang out with Southern California's plants and animals on their own turf. The Discovery Center's "living, breathing, flapping, buzzing, and splashing home" sits on the 316-acre Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, the ideal location for exploration of the region's most memorable residents in their native habitats.

A walk-through aviary encompasses the tidal slough habitat of black-crowned night herons, red-breasted mergansers, and endangered clapper rail chicks, freshly hatched from the in-house breeding program. Bald and golden eagles await up-close encounters at the Eagle Mesa, but the rays get even closer: an interactive touch pool puts the aquatic creatures beneath your fingertips. Raptor Row hosts the Center's rescued birds of prey, all of which have injuries or other conditions that prevent them from surviving outside the refuge on their own. Visitors are also free to pursue their own wildlife adventure along the center's 1.5 miles of walking trails.
