Pre Holiday Walk At Abalone Cove Shoreline Park
After enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday, Palos Verdes home owners are getting ready for Christmas and Hanukkah. This is a great time to take a little break before visits from family and friends and take some time for yourself with an outdoor excursion. Los Serenos de Point Vicente is offering a free moderate hike at the Abalone Cove Shoreline Park on Sunday, December 11, 2016, at 12:00 noon. You can enjoy the outdoors while learning about the fascinating marine life in our area. No matter how many times you have been to the tide pools, the ever changing waters continue to captivate us.
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, and specifically 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 and jackets if needed 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. 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.LosSerenos.org, or call (310) 377-5370.
