Enjoy A Tide Pool Hike at Abalone Cove Shoreline Park!
No matter how many times you may have been to the Palos Verdes tide pools, it always is 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 such wonderful tide pool areas.
On Sunday, February 17, 2019, at 1:00 p.m., the Los Serenos de Point Vicente docents will be offering a free Tide Pool Hike starting at the Abalone Cove Shoreline Park. This park features two beaches – Abalone Cove and Sacred Cove. These hikes are a great time to enjoy the outdoors with experts who will be discussing a variety of topics such as Palos Verdes Peninsula history, its geology, plant and animal life, as well as marine mammals. As you tour the tide pools and watch the fascinating marine life, you will learn about the inhabitants – sea stars, sea anemones, hermit crabs, and many more interesting animals. This park is considered an Ecological Reserve; therefore, none of its inhabitants can be removed.
The hike is scheduled to start when the tide is low enough to view the marine life. You will be visiting many tide pools during this two hour hike so be sure to wear sturdy shoes.
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.LosSeranos.org, or call (310) 377-5370.
