Raise Your Fist

Hello Good Natured Souls,

Lots of events and activities going on at the park. Stay hip with the buzz and go to our websites and social media outlets to stay in the know.  2016 is coming and we are ready to dominate and represent the NPS in San Diego and cannot do it without you.


After a long lull the tidepool season is among us.  Good luck out there folks and enjoy nature’s playground.  Also, we want to start collecting any trash you find on your shifts.  We have a trashcan down by the trailer so please put all your marine debris and recyclables (from visitors to) in it so our posse of artist can use them in their works.
