Heron Preserve and Windy Cove

In the Morro Bay State Park, there is a Heron Preserve next to Windy Cove.  Winter is the prime nesting time for the various inhabitants of the Heron Preserve and migrating birds visiting Windy Cove.  Bring your binoculars!

The Heron Preserve is 10 minutes south of Cayucos.
