The Eel River Estuary Preserve and Sounding Seas Dunes Reserve (“Preserves”), located in Humboldt County, are within The Wildlands Conservancy’s (TWC) North Coast Region. They are part of TWC’s expansive system of nature preserves, encompassing more than 315 square miles across 25 locations. TWC’s mission is to preserve the beauty and biodiversity of the earth and provide programs so that youth may know the wonder and joy of nature. 

Located where the Eel River meets the great Pacific, the Preserves encompass 1,300-acres of tidal wetlands, freshwater marsh, sand dunes, coastal grasslands, beach frontage, and a spectacular half-moon bay on the Eel River. Diverse habitats provide for a variety of species of birds including waterfowl, waders, shorebirds, birds of prey, and songbirds. Walking will be on relatively flat terrain. Plan on wearing appropriate attire for this wet environment.
