Buena Vista Audubon Society & Nature Center
Ranked #24 of 78 things to do in Oceanside
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The lagoon and area is well kept. The staff and volunteers are doing a great job of removing the non-native species to help keep this area a natural preserve. Great place for walks -- fund for kids.

Here is a small gem of a nature center offering a short walk in the lagoon area. The displays
inside the center are well done. Families will enjoy an outing here.

The building itself is filled with various stuffed birds and other critters. We so enjoyed just moseying around. The walk through the reeds is quiet and provides a great opportunity to see various birds and reptiles. Very subdued pleasure.

If you are a birder, or like to learn about animals in the area, this is a must! Great for little kids, and adults alike, nice displays of actual stuffed birds and ground creatures who inhabit the area. Good play area for kids and the walk through the reeds is worth it.

In the middle of the hustle and bustle, you can still find a refuge to in the seclusion and sounds of the park like setting. Plan to spend a couple of hours refreshing your spirit and trying to identify the songs of birds that surround you. Very helpful visitors centre and they host lots of interesting and fun events.
