Enjoy Dinner Under the Stars in the San Joaquin Marsh

Sea and Sage Audubon’s annual barbecue has become a summer staple over the years that certainly doesn’t disappoint. After all, where is there a better place to enjoy repast under the stars while listening to an engaging speaker?

The barbecue is scheduled for Saturday, July 29, from 5-10 p.m. The evening program will feature Miguel Ordenana, who will speak on citizen science and his mammal research project at Griffith Park. Ordenana is a native of Los Angeles, who grew up near Griffith Park. He describes himself as “passionate about carnivores” and engaged in a study to determine whether urban carnivores and deer can enter and exit Griffith Park via corridors, or if the park is an island surrounded by a sea of urban development.

During the presentation, participants will enjoy chicken and freshly grilled hot dogs, salad, beans, chips, fresh fruit, cake, lemonade, and coffee. A veggie wrap will be provided for those who specifically request it on their reservation forms. The event is staffed entirely by Sea and Sage volunteers.

This family event will feature something for everyone:

  • Dining in the meadow (6-7 p.m.)
  • A sale of used nature books (5-7:15 p.m.)
  • Evening walks around the marsh after dinner (6:30-7:50 p.m.)
  • The citizen science and mammal research program (starts at 8:15 p.m.)

This event sells out fast, so reservations are a must. Tickets for the barbecue and program are $20 for adults and $7 for children under five. Tickets include meals and beverages, evening marsh walk and program. Activities will begin at 5 p.m. Sign-up sheets for the night wildlife walk after the program will be available at the welcome table.

For more information, reservations, and directions, call Sea and Sage Audubon at (949) 261-7963, or visit the Sea and Sage website. The marsh is a hidden oasis located in the heart of Irvine. For more information on the Marsh, please visit the IRWD website.
