We will be going to view the famous grunion run down at the La Jolla Shores beach. Grunion are small fish that have a unique spawning behavior that has made them an attraction in Southern California for decades. They leave the water on nights of the new and full moons during certain months and come onto the beach to spawn, sometimes resulting in thousands of fish flopping on the wet sand...a truly unique spectacle!

Meet us down at the beach near Scripps Pier! We will likely stay until at least 12 (midnight), as the second hour of the run is said to be much more active than the first hour.

Wear shoes that can get wet and bring a flashlight if you have one!
