If you want to have some outdoor fun this weekend, here is a suggestion. On Sunday, February 19, 2012, at 12:30 p.m., Abalone Cove Shoreline Park will be having one of their free public tide pool walks. No matter how many times we have been to the tide pools, it is always an enjoyable visit. I love the magic of seeing all the creatures living in the pools. Palos Verdes homes owners are lucky to be surrounded by wonderful tide pool areas.
Abalone Cove Shoreline Park features two beaches (Abalone Cove and Sacred Cove), tide pools, and viewing areas of trails crisscrossing the area. These hikes are a great time to enjoy nature with experts who will be discussing Palos Verdes Peninsula history, geology, plant and animal life, as well as marine mammals. You can see sea urchins, sea stars, sea hares and sea anemones in pristine tide pool settings.
The hikes are scheduled when the tide is low enough to view the marine life. Please wear sturdy shoes while you visit the tide pools during this two hour walk.
Parking is available at Abalone Cove Shoreline Park located at 5970 Palos Verdes Drive South, Rancho Palos Verdes 90275. There is no fee for the hike and the parking fees will be waived up to 45 minutes prior to the hike and 30 minutes after. For more information go to www.LosSeranos.og, or call (310) 377-5370.
