Batiquitos Lagoon Nature Center

Batiquitos Lagoon is a coastal wetland north of San Diego between the cities of Carlsbad and Encinitas. It is one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the southern California coast of the United States.

The area is run by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife as a nature reserve.


The Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and protection of Batiquitos Lagoon. The Foundation is involved in programs to educate the public in the values of this natural environment and the habitats it provides for birds, insects, plants, fish, mammals and benthic animals.
