Morro BayMorro Bay and Morro Rock

Located approximately 17 miles south of Cambria, the Morro Bay area is known for its natural beauty and is a Globally Important Bird Area on the Pacific Flyway.  Morro Bay's landmark is Morro Rock, a volcanic peak over 21 million years old. This 576-foot-high dome-shaped formation now serves as a preserve for the endangered peregrine falcons that nest in its crevices. As a bird sanctuary, Morro Bay provides a beneficial habitat to more than 250 species. Dozens of Festival events appeal to all birders and to visitors interested in Morro Bay, a designated national and state estuary. The return of wintering birds to Morro Bay, California, is celebrated each year at the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival, held over the Martin Luther King Holiday Weekend. Birders spotted 213 species during the January 2004 Festival. 

The Morro Bay Natural History Museum, located in Morro Bay State Park, includes engaging exhibits, informative lectures, and a hands-on discovery area for children; nature walks are conducted on a regular basis.
