Once at the entrance, proceed to either the paid parking booth or free parking. If parked in free parking, once parked head out to the beach meeting location on foot. If you paid for parking, drive past the paid entry gate, take a left, and drive all the way to the end of the parking lot where the fence for the edge of the parking lot is. Turn right, and drive all the way to the corner of the parking lot (easternmost point of parking lot). Turn left onto the narrow pathway to the smaller parking lot to find the meeting location. Park anywhere you can find a spot. Walk to the northeastern most point of the smaller parking lot. Look for a wagon, buckets, and an employee in a bright orange shirt at the edge of the parking lot and the protected bird nesting area.
