Come and see what scientists are doing to track local mammals, restore native habitat, and learn about the workings of one of California’s rare coastal lagoons. A tour is offered on selected Thursdays and Sundays of each month beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Younger Lagoon Reserve tours are open to the public and free with paid admission to the Seymour Center. They are best suited for children 10 years of age and older.
