Spring is in the air!
Celebrate the changing of the seasons on March 20th when the spring equinox takes place. This spring promises to be phenomenal after the tremendous rains we've had this winter that have filled the wetlands to record levels. Imagine how beautiful and lush it will be as the flowers bloom, the grasses grow, the trees leaf-out, and the birds sing.
As the days get longer, sunnier and warmer, it will be a great time to get out into the wetlands for a nature walk, a bike ride, and bird watching. Take advantage of the miles of easily accessible trails meandering along the slough system and enjoy in the glittering water vistas.
The trail systems along the Watsonville Wetlands were built for our enjoyment by the City of Watsonville and are restored and maintained by the Watsonville Wetlands Watch. Maps of the wetlands and trails are available at the Fitz Wetlands Education Resource Center located at the Pajaro Valley High School.
So don't wait! Plan your own spring fling with family and friends and enjoy the outdoors together on the trails along the Watsonville Wetlands.
