SA57 Coastal Dune Ecology | 2020 | FREE
Time - 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Trip Leader(s): Friends of the Dunes
Meet outside the front doors of the community center.
Explore the diverse and dynamic coastal dune ecosystem, and visit the Friends of the Dunes headquarters: the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center, 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. This will be a slower paced walk focused more on plants than birds. 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. (Friends of the Dunes offers another dune habitat trip on Sunday #SU78).This is a free community event, but registration is required to reserve your spot, no basic registration fee is required if you are ONLY signing up for free community events.
Bookings are closed for this event.
