Highlights of the Coastal Discovery Celebration

For seven weeks, the Coastal Discovery Celebration brings coastal San Luis Obispo County vibrantly to life. During this seven-week collection of events, adventure awaits! Back by popular demand, the Visitor Center at Hearst Castle State Park will offer free weekly screenings of the iWERKS feature film, Disneynature Oceans. Made with cutting-edge technology, this landmark film glimpses the lives of penguins, whales, dolphins and sharks. Other eye-opening experiences include talks about the life cycle of the Northern Elephant Seal at the Coastal Discovery Center in San Simeon. Kayak back in time with a peaceful ride into Point San Luis, then tour the historic Point San Luis Lighthouse. In the mood to work? Roll up your sleeves for a day of trail restoration at Montaña de Oro State Park with other folks who care. Or head to the Central Coast Aquarium for “Fins & Feathers” an event that explores the connection between marine life and seabirds. No matter how you spend your Coastal Discovery Celebration, you’re sure to leave invigorated, informed and inspired.
