La Jolla Harbor Seal ‘Walk and Talk’

  • What you can expect, per the La Jolla Light newspaper: “The Sierra Club’s Seal Society will hold its annual informational “Talk and Walk” programs at the Children’s Pool. During several Saturdays this pupping season, participants will hear docents discuss the life cycle of harbor seals while viewing new seal pups. “Already, one pup has been born on Casa Beach and word is that he is doing well,” said docent Ellen Shively. “It’s very early to have a viable pup. I hope not too many mothers try to have their pups at South Casa this year, as it is fully unprotected, and an uneducated visitor can cause great harm to the newborn suckling and mother if disturbed in this important four-to-seven-week period before being weaned.” The tours meet at Mangelsen Nature Gallery, 7916 Girard Avenue, at 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays: March 16 and 30; and April 6. The hour-long event is free, and no reservation is necessary.”
  • When: March 16, 2pm-3pm
  • Where: Mangelsen Nature Gallery, 7916 Girard Avenue, La Jolla, CA 92037
  • Tickets: Free
