SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Capistrano Dispatch
Kick off the summer season Doheny-style by celebrating the annual return of the grunion. The Doheny State Beach Grunion Night begins at 10 p.m. Friday, June 5 and includes a nature program and other activities.
Doheny docents Tom and Marilyn Wenzel will be located in Picnic Areas A & B as they present a program on grunion—the little fish that swarm local beaches to lay their eggs in the sand. The program will then move to the beach, where attendees can witness the actual event. The program is free, as is parking in the State Park. The visitor center and aquarium will be open from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
