Up and down the North County Coast in San Diego is a stretch of lagoons that have become home to numerous creatures and wildlife. Storm tides from the ocean help form these six lagoons, where a lot of birds migrate during the winter, helping to create a fragile Eco-system.
- This place holds both wildlife (home to over a 100 species of birds) and the people who come to enjoy it. It is filled with bird watchers, walking paths, and ecological reserves.
- As a San Diego resident, I have the privilege to drive by these six lagoons on a regular basis. The beauty of this nature that surrounds us is amazing. Next time you are driving down the 5-freeway in San Diego, stop and check it out. It is a great place to visit and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Nature centers have been built at each waterway. These are fragile habitats and many acts in North County have been passed to continue preserving it including the Endangered Species Act. Each lagoon has something to offer from classes to ecological reserves to mile long trails.
- For all of you who commute on the 5-freeway in San Diego, you know what I am talking about.
