From the intersection with Hwy. 1 in the city, drive west on W. Main St. (Hwy. ) about miles to the parking lot for Rancho Guadalupe County Park. The estuary is located immediately north of the parking lot.

        Sites were chosen along a gradient of urbanisation and reflected the dominant habitat types used by waterfowl in the Bay. Mean waterfowl abundance was ± birds per site, and sites in the inner part of the estuary had higher overall waterfowl abundances (r 2 = , p = ). Waterfowl hunting (also called wildfowling or waterfowl shooting in the UK) is the practice of hunting ducks, geese, or other waterfowl for food and sport..
