The Huntington Beach Conservancy’s Interpretive Center opened to the public in 2010. The Center’s displays were funded with grants from the California Coastal Conservancy and other agencies. The Center features a large wetlands diorama, educational displays on the ecological role of coastal wetlands and their restoration and threats, and a unique interactive display on diagnosing and caring for sick and injured wildlife.

The Interpretive Center is located at 21900 PCH (corner of PCH and Newland). For a tour of the Center and our Magnolia Marsh, please email us or call us to arrange a time.

Education Program

Educating the public of the importance of coastal wetlands and the protection of wildlife habitat is a key goal of the Conservancy. In May 2010 we completed installation of the educational and interpretive displays in our Interpretive and Education Center.

We are always seeking volunteers to serve as docents to staff the Center and to conduct tours of the adjacent Magnolia Marsh. View all Volunteer Opportunities!
