The Living Coast Discovery Center inspires the community to connect with and care for our coastal environment.
We are open to the public 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Discover local wildlife from around Southern California and learn how you can do your part to protect the environment.
From private Animal Encounters, daily feedings, birthday parties, special events, and wildlife camps, we have adventures for everyone!
For more than 30 years, we have reached thousands of children through field trips, outreaches, scout programs, and other community education programs.
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on support from community members like yourself. Whether it’s a membership, volunteer time, donation, or sharing our message with your friends, we thank you for your support!
