"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain
is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as
fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life."

- John Muir

Colorado Lagoon

WhimbrelA mixture of recreational space and beach, wetland and marine habitat, Colorado Lagoon offers a bit of everything for everything. Walking around this dynamic East Long Beach environment you can easily become a bird-watcher, plant enthusiast, swimmer, sun-bather, or playground participant. The Lagoon is tidally influenced by fresh marine water and that water attracts not only people but also the dipping and diving birds, the salt-tolerant wetland plants and the occasional raccoon or two.

Colorado Lagoon is completely open to the public year round for recreation and there are several educational and cleanup events throughout the year hosted by the El Dorado Nature Center, Friends of the Colorado Lagoon, and by us that take place on the sandy beaches and muddy banks of the Lagoon. To help the Lagoon out or for other concerns, email us at: info@lcwstewards.org.
