Sign at the lot near the Discovery Park Lighthouse says:
"Parking Permit Required. Permits are only for those who otherwise would be unable to get to the beach: Families with children under 8, persons over 62, and others who are physically unable to walk to the beach due to injury, illness or some other physical condition. Permits are available at the Discovery Park Visitor Center. ...Permits are valid for 3 hours."
Never tried it myself, but it seems like giving a ride to anyone over 62 to the beach would yield a permit. Of course they are limited but birders are usually earlier than the public in general. Visitors Center is open 8:30 am -5 pm.
