Join Mike to explore Estero Bluffs. Mike is not only an excellent birder and photographer, but is also a native plant expert. This is one of our newest State Parks, dominated by a grassland marine terrace which leads down to the beautiful wild ocean bluff. Enjoy a slow-paced walk of 1.5-2 miles along flat trails. A rich diversity of coastal habitats, sea stacks, and intertidal areas attract a variety of birds. Expect rock-loving shorebirds with possible sightings of turnstones, surfbirds, whimbrels, sea ducks, terns, sandpipers and gulls.

Bring a hat, water, snacks, sunscreen, binoculars and field guides (if you have them) and dress in layers to accommodate wind and changing weather. Sturdy shoes are recommended. Scopes welcomed. Restrooms not available. Rain cancels.
