Join us for a Naturalist presentation on whales, other cetaceans, and marine mammals that can frequently be seen from the Dana Point Headlands. Designed to introduce participants to the natural history of marine mammals, whale characterization, and interesting tidbits about these large and fascinating creatures of the sea. A walk along the Dana Point Preserve will focus on what types of marine mammals we see, how to identify them, where and when to look for them, and how to responsible view marine wildlife. Stops along the overlooks on the trail may even lead to a whale sighting!
