Facility Rental at the Tijuana Estuary

We have two facility use areas in the vicinity of the visitor center that may be available for use by government agencies, non-government agencies, and by the public depending on the degree to which the event is consistent with the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge on which the facilities lie.

Appropriate Events

  1. Events that can be demonstrated to have an effective and sufficient environmental education component consistent with the goals of the Reserve and Refuge. Such determination is made by BOTH the Reserve Manager and Refuge Manager.
  2. Events sponsored by an active partner in the mission of either Reserve or Refuge (for example: Member of the TRNERR Advisory Council) for an event directly connected to that mission.
