Walking and bicycling along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk is really fun, but wouldn’t it be more fun with a scavenger hunt in hand? Notice things you haven’t seen before, stop and listen in new places, observe wildlife, and more!
The Santa Cruz Riverwalk provides a natural respite in our busy days, right in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz where you can go birdwatching, observe butterflies and watch bees move from flower to flower. This urban ecosystem only thrives if we support it. Take action today and volunteer to help your river thrive.
