The Anstine-Audubon Nature Preserve is an eleven-acre site located within the County of San Diego adjacent to the cities of Vista and Oceanside. Three native plant communities occur within the boundaries of the Anstine Preserve - Coastal Sage Scrub, Southern Willow Riparian Forest, and Coast Live Oak Woodland. Anstine-Audubon Nature Preserve is FREE and open to the public on Saturdays between 9am and 12pm (closed July through September). There is a feeder station and binoculars to be lent out for birders of all ages and skill levels, and a moderate loop trail that will take you past the pond habitat. There are docents on site to answer any questions as well.
