Salt Marsh Nature Park Professional Review and Guide
"The Carpinteria Salt Marsh, historically known as El Estero (the estuary), is one of California’s last remaining wetlands. The area was once inhabited by Chumash Indians. The 230-acre marsh is fed by Franklin Creek and Santa Monica Creek. The marsh has an abundance of sea and plant life and is a nesting ground for thousands of migratory waterfowl and shorebirds. The Salt Marsh Nature Park sits along the east end of the salt marsh with a trail system and several observation decks."
