CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — If you're looking to take the family out to explore the South Bay, and maybe do your part to keep it beautiful, there's no better chance than with Living Coast Discovery Center.
LCDC's Trail to Bay Challenge poses one simple task to families: Attend three free guided hikes and participate in one cleanup hosted by the center.
The free hikes alone are well worth the time commitment. The center's guided walks showing off the South Bay's biodiversity and native plants and wildlife will take hikers to Morrison Pond, Otay Valley Regional Park, Sweetwater Marsh, Rice Canyon, and to the top of Mother Miguel.
A schedule of free, guided hikes throughout the South Bay can be found here . The center hosts several cleanups throughout the year as well to jump into.
At cleanups, hikers will join other families and volunteers in cleaning areas near the bay, the center says.
Not only do hikers get three guided hikes for free, there's also a special reward for completion of the challenge. Groups that complete the three-hike, one-cleanup challenge will then get a family four pack to the center.
