Batiquitos Lagoon

Celebrating Over 30 Years of Service to the Community

Batiquitos Lagoon is a coastal wetland north of San Diego between the cities of Carlsbad and Encinitas. It is one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the southern California coast of the United States.   The area is run by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife as a nature reserve and is designated a Marine Protected area.

The Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and protection of Batiquitos Lagoon. The Foundation is involved in programs to educate the public in the values of this natural environment and the habitats it provides for birds, insects, plants, fish, mammals and benthic animals.   The Lagoon Foundation is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. Please take a look around our website to find out more about the lagoon and the foundation.
