Spotted in the news: 6 Great Wildlife Walks


The visitors center for the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary is located in Ventura, CA, but you’d be wise to book far ahead to reach the islands, which are accessible only by park concessionaire boats and planes or private boat. Cross the channel or pick out a viewing spot on any of the several islands. California sea lions and harbor seals frequent Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, Santa Barbara and San Miguel islands.
