Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

The Buena Vista Audubon in Oceanside is a volunteer run chapter of the National Audubon Society. Started in 1951, the volunteers keep the nature center current and engaging for people of all ages. After walking through the San Diego wetlands along side the Buena Vista Ecological Reserve on their short, quarter mile nature trail a time or two, we explored the nature center. The nature center is full of interpretative displays of local wildlife (all of which were taxidermized after their expiration). Half of the building houses exhibits inside glass while the other half is tactile. There are rows of drawers to open and survey, and a variety of pelts, birds, nests, and fossils to touch.

Hasta la vista, Buena Vista.

    We’ve never had the chance to go into the Nature Center. It is now a must with our grands. So dang awesome. What fun for A1!

    1. The nature center is now open seven days a week. Plenty of opportunities for visits. I think the kiddos will love it. I really enjoy the walk through the cattails.
