Accessible Lake Merritt: Pop-Up Aquarium and Birding!

  • Lake Merritt amphitheater 1064 Lake Merritt Blvd Oakland, CA, 94606 United States (map)

Who's living in Lake Merritt? Let's find out by exploring above and below the surface of everyone's favorite estuary. We'll take a short walk along a paved path to look for birds who are migrating through for the winter, and we'll host a pop up aquarium to highlight the underwater creatures that call Lake Merritt home. Both activities are ADA accessible and appropriate for people with mobility limitations.

The popup aquarium will be set up at a stationary table. We will have a spotting scope set up to get a clear look at the birds, and we'll have binoculars to share. 

Meet us at the amphitheater at the south end of Lake Merritt, along Lake Merritt Boulevard. Street parking and public transportation are available.
