What we're about

Our vision is for lower Rose Creek to be an open space park providing recreational and learning opportunities and a clean, healthy, aesthetically pleasing environment for residents, visitors, businesses, and native plants and animals, while serving as an accessible link for bicyclists and pedestrians to move between Rose Canyon Park, Marian Bear Park, Mission Bay Park, and surrounding communities. We invite everyone to help us make the dream a reality by habitat restoration, community cleanups, and nature walks.  For more information, visit our website.

Guided Bird Walk

Needs a location

ROSE CREEK is a treasure in Pacific Beach, popular with Bikers on the East side, a quiet, shaded walking path on the West side. Once a month, on Saturday, Friends of Rose Creek lead a Guided Bird Walk along the Mud Flats, winding Estuary and into the Riparian area full of trees and song birds. Recently we’ve seen baby ducks, seagulls and Ospreys chicks. More unusual sightings; Northern Shoveler, Red Knot, and Black-headed Grosbeak. Join Laurie at Mission Bay High School. FACULTY PARKING Lot along Rose Creek, off Grand Ave.

Sunset will be at 6:15 PM.

The famous Kyle will be leading our walk and helping to identify all those songbirds that flit about so fast we never see them!
