Ghost Ships

Nature Loop

At low tide, one of the ghost ships may be visible next to the shoreline. In this marshy area, plants have taken over the wreckage and provide habitat for many species. Here, you’ll find several species of native plants that thrive in moist habitats, such as yellow passionflower, desert false indigo, and common sneezeweed. These plants all attract various butterflies, moths, bees, and other pollinators, who rely on the plants as a source of food. Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, Green Herons, Osprey, Hawks, Red-winged Blackbirds, American Crow and Fish Crow are all common and nest in this area.
