COVID-19 updates:

BVAS  has updated its COVID precautions, in line with the California Department of Public Health's September 23, 2022 announcement, which states that wearing masks is optional, depending on one's personal level of risk; however, if you have symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19, you should wear a mask.

Nature Center updates

Our Nature Center is currently open Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. We are always looking for volunteer hosts to staff the Nature Center to ensure we can adequately cover the shifts. For more information on volunteering, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Rocco Valluzzi

All our activities have resumed. Please see the Newsletter page for current and ongoing events.

Our nature trail is also open (dawn to dusk) so come and enjoy a walk!

If you can't make it to the Nature Center or trail, please see our virtual tours on Facebook and see some of the cool surprises on the trail and learn more about the fauna and flora who call the lagoon home.

Our Mission
