Naturalist to lead tour of local wetlands

The Long Beach Sierra Club and the Los Cerritos Wetlands Land Trust are sponsoring a free, guided tour through the Los Cerritos Wetlands on Saturday, Sept. 6 with naturalist Erik Zahn.
Zahn, a graduate of the biology program at California State University Long Beach, did his field work research on the wetlands and knows every part of this once extensive natural habitat.
Participants will learn how wetlands provide nesting areas for an array of seabirds and safe haven for young fish, while exploring this area that is under attack by commercial and residential development.
The wetlands are adjacent to the intersection of Studebaker Avenue and Westminster Boulevard where Long Beach and Seal Beach meet.
The two-hour walk starts at 9 a.m. from the Marketplace parking lot to the east of Trader Joe’s.
Reservations are necessary and may be made by calling (562) 498.2690. For more information, visit
