At the absolute southern edge of Oceanside, you’ll find the Buena Vista Audubon Society’s Nature Center.  Sited on the Buena Vista Lagoon, the Center offers a variety of natural history experiences.  In the course of an afternoon, you can walk amid native plants to see views of the lagoon and its bird life, discover tracks along the shore that reveal the night’s animal visitors, tour the garden of native plants, find the world’s tiniest mammals in one of the exhibits of local habitat, learn what endangered species live in the lagoon and challenge your children with nature games.
