Located on Riparian View, the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary is a 300 acre fresh water marsh made up of a series of ponds and more than 11 miles of nature trails. Largely created by a wildlife enthusiast, Peer Swan, the sanctuary is home to a wide variety of birds, including cormorants, ducks, eagles, egrets, geese, grebes and herons. If you are wondering what to do in Irvine with kids, this is a great place to visit.
There are many other animals like bobcats, coyotes, and raccoons, as well as many species of amphibians, fish, and reptiles. In addition to the trails, there is a boardwalk, an observation area, and the Audubon House, also known as the Duck Club. More California destinations and California beaches.
