    The History of Recreation on the Lagoon

    The History of Recreation on the Lagoon

    We welcome Josh Cantor today and are excited to learn a little bit about the history, current offerings, and all the recreational opportunities you can find at the lagoon, which goes hand in hand with our environmental education. 
    Josh was recognized as our honoree during our 2019 Gala (Bond ~ The Lagoon that Loved Me) for his contributions to the Foundation.
    Josh is the owner of California Watersports, which is the recreational arm of the lagoon. His facility offers private beachfront rental space, kayaks, paddleboards, and a few motorized boat options for visitors to enjoy on the lagoon.
    California Watersports is our venue sponsor for the yearly Lagoona Kahuna Team Challenge, which allows corporate businesses to get out and clean the lagoon on kayaks and paddleboards as well as compete in team-building games.

    Birding at the Discovery Center - LIVE

    Birding at the Discovery Center - LIVE

    Today we will be doing a Bird Walk at the beautiful Discovery Center with Mr. Rick Grove. You might remember Rick from Episode 10. He and COO Samantha Richter talked about the many birds you see and hear on these bird walks. 
    For a refresher about Mr. Grove; he currently serves as the Assistant Superintendent of Personnel Services for the Carlsbad Unified School District. He is on the board of directors of Carlsbad Hi Noon Rotary. Rick is also a wedding Officiant. Where does his love for our feathered friends come from? His Biology degree from Occidental College is where his first interest in birds came from and it has grown into quite a robust hobby. We thank Rick for his contributions to the center and are delighted that the walks have started up again.  Sit back and enjoy the sounds of the birds and Rick as he takes a group of birders on this exploration of the Discovery Center trail. You will also enjoy the narration of Mr. John Biethan producer of our podcasts.
