Come and explore Oakland’s secret beach with us!

In celebration of national Citizen Science Day and in support of the City Nature Challenge, join the California Center for Natural History and Bay Nature to document nature in Oakland!

We’ll be converging at Radio Beach (aka Toll Plaza Beach) to document all the birds, tidal plants,and anything else we can find. Radio Beach is really a unique spot in our fair city - as Andrew Alden says in his fantastic blog Oakland Geology, “Radio Beach is Oakland’s nearest thing to a natural beach… There is no lonelier or prettier spot on Oakland’s waterfront.”

We’ll be using iNaturalist to document our findings. Don't have an iNat account yet? No problem! Sign up for an iNaturalist account, then download the app: iPhone, Android.

Help CCNH continue to provide free natural history events! We suggest a $20 donation per event, no one turned away for lack of funds. You can make a donation here.
