The Environmental Study Loop at Crystal Cove State Park is open for visitors. This unique facility gives visitors a peek at the science of park management and conservation.

The science stations include animal tracking, bugs and butterflies, birds, wind and weather, early residents, rocks on the move and nature’s trespassers. These science stations give park visitors a chance to perform “citizen science” projects. For more information, see their website at: http://www.crystalcovestatepark.org/environmental-study-loop/.
