Discover Wildlife at Bixby Marshland (Virtual Tour)

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Event Details

Join us for a virtual tour of the Bixby Marshland.

The Bixby Marshland is a remnant of a formerly extensive, natural-freshwater wetland known as Bixby Slough. Over the years, most of Bixby Slough was destroyed due to development. Since the marsh has been rejuvenated, a large variety of plants, birds, fish, and animals call the Bixby Marshland home including 110 plants , 69 bird species ( including ducks, herons, egrets, coots, hummingbirds and more), and 84 wildlife species, including Baja California treefrogs and the common side-blotched lizards.

A marsh is a wetland environment. It is a tract of soft, wet land usually containing grass or rushes. The Sanitation Districts’ marshland consists of various habitats that receive water from the Wilmington Drain. Wetlands are unique because of their role as an “ecotone”, or transition area, between terrestrial (land) and aquatic (water) environments.
