Revisit Salmon Creek
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
In October, we will be back to South Salmon Creek Beach to see how it has changed since our last visit in March. This will give us the perfect opportunity to talk about the role of our nature journals in seasonal patterns and changes over time. How are the colors different? How have the animal tracks and behavior changed since our visit in March?
This is a very fun location to observe coastal wetlands, waterbirds, and to explore animal tracks including red foxes.
We won’t hike long distances but the terrain is slightly challenging because it is mostly sand dunes. The weather is variable and can be windy. Be prepared for sand and wind. Bring sketching and watercolor supplies, binoculars, and a potluck lunch to share. We will return to the parking lot around 12:30 for the potluck so you don’t need to pack your food/beverages on this trip. If you came here with us in March please bring your nature journal from that trip for an illuminating comparison.
We will meet in the parking lot at 10am. Parking here is free.
Directions: Drive north on Hwy 1 from Bodega Bay, after the big sign and turnoff for Bodega Dunes Campground stay attentive on the left. Just before the bridge over the creek there is a small turnoff onto Bean ave. Turn left onto Bean ave and follow this small street until it dead ends at a parking lot covered in sand.
