Group Plans Tours of Newport Bay Preserve

Guided walking tours of the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Preserve are being offered today by Friends of Newport Bay.

The tours will cover about a mile of Upper Newport Bay, with stops for exhibits and talks on the area’s history.

Small tour groups will depart from the corner of Eastbluff Drive and Backbay Drive every 10 or 15 minutes, beginning at 9 a.m. The last tour will start at 10:15 a.m.


Organizers encourage participants to bring drinking water and a snack and to continue exploring on their own after the tours.
