About the Event

Meet up location: Compton Creek Natural Park at 8:30am.

Upon arrival, CNC staff will check-in folks and have guardians sign waivers. Once everyone is gathered, we will dive into an ice breaker. We will then board our bus and make our way to Malibu Lagoon State Beach, which will take about 2 hours (traffic pending). The bus will drop us off at the Malibu Lagoon State Beach, during our walk to the site, we ask folks to be alert and stay close to the group because we will be strolling through a populated area. We are asking guardians to share this information with the youth in preparation for our visit.

Once we get to Malibu Lagoon, CNC supproting staff will welcome us to the site: its history and importance—why Malibu Lagoon is an vital place for humans, plants, and animals—and lead us into an ice breaker to practice keen observation with a fun Loteria game, where Program Coordinator Zee Zetino (they/them), will distribute  binoculars. Our stroll along Malibu Lagoon will consist of a concrete and dirt path, and eventually stepping off a wood plank to get on the sand. We will proceed with lunch. After lunch, Zee will transition us to a still birding activty by the beach followed with some mindful nature journaling. Come ready to do some nature observations! Once we get done with our nature journals, we will clean up and gather all of our belongings and wrap up to head back to the entrance of Malibu to board our bus and head back home.

We expect Malibu Lagoon to be partly cloudy with a 76° and low temperatures at 56° as the day gets cooler (subject to change), so please layer up with thin layers that can easily be added or removed (think of layers like an onion)! We will spend 8:30am-5:00pm (approximately 9 hours) together so make sure to bring a nice filling lunch, comfortable shoes and/or sandles to be in, enough water (at least 32 oz of water), a backpack to carry your belongings, a blanket/towel to sit on, and curiosity for the ocean. Please make sure to arrive at Compton Creek Natural Park on time (5-10 mins early) because the bus will not be able to wait and we need to follow our schedule accordingly.

Reminders: We will be strolling to Malibu Lagoon State Beach after being dropped off, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. If the tide pools are low, keep in mind that your shoes might get wet and sandy. We are expecting the day to be sunny through high clouds so bring proper attire and/or products to protect your skin from the sun. Although we are visiting the beach, CNC staff will not take responsibility for anyone swimming in the water. There will be a lifeguard on duty, so you can access the water/swim at your own discretion and comfortability, preferable up to your ankles. We suggest only getting your feet wet if you feel comfortable. Be prepared to be/walk around sand for most of our time at Malibu Lagoon State Beach.

If you need any access needs to make your trip as comfortable as possible or need to communicate anything to CNC staff to ensure a pleasurable experience in our Transit to Trails, please reach out to our Program Coordinator Zee Zetino, zee@communitynatureconnection.org AND ttt@communitynatureconnection.org
