Explore the diverse and dynamic coastal dune ecosystem and visit the headquarters of local nonprofit, Friends of the Dunes. The Humboldt Coastal Nature Center is a restored house that was originally built into the dunes and still has a “living roof.” After touring the nature center, participants will take a short hike to the beach through beach pine forest, willow-dominated swale, and open sand dunes. Terrain is sandy and steeply undulating; wear closed-toed shoes and dress in layers. Restrooms available at the nature center. Bring a snack and something to drink.
