Another Carlsbad place we enjoy walking is at the Batiquitos Lagoon. It is located at  7380 Gabbiano Lane, Carlsbad, CA 92011.

There is a nature center that is open Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and weekends 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

It is a level walk with a beautiful view of the lagoon.

Down the trail and back is just over 3 miles so we thought it would be the perfect spot to do our Turtle Trot Fundraiser.

The Turtle Trot is a 5K fundraiser that anyone can participate in and you can do it anywhere. It benefits the Re-Member charity that works with the Oglala Lakota Oyate Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

Our friend Laura volunteered there a few years ago and she brought this 5K event to our attention. You too can participate:

And you’ll even get a medal!
