Celebrating Over 30 Years of Service to the Community
Batiquitos Lagoon is a coastal wetland north of San Diego between the cities of Carlsbad and Encinitas. It is one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the southern California coast of the United States.
The area is run by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife as a nature reserve.
The Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and protection of Batiquitos Lagoon. The Foundation is involved in programs to educate the public in the values of this natural environment and the habitats it provides for birds, insects, plants, fish, mammals and benthic animals.
The Lagoon Foundation is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. Please take a look around our website to find out more about the lagoon and the foundation.
BLF Volunteer orientation will be held every 4th Saturday of the month for people interested in joining the all-volunteer BLF family. A general overview of the Batiquitos Lagoon Ecological Reserve (BLER) and Marine Protected Area (MPA), its resources, and the many volunteer opportunities available will be presented. Take home reference material will be provided. 12 Noon – 1:30 P.M
Upcoming Orientations: April 27 | May 25 | June 29 | July 27 | August 31
