Survey Salmon Creek Beach!
June 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
In June, the North Coast Nature Journal Club will head to one of my favorite spots, South Salmon Creek Beach! This is a very fun location to observe coastal sand dunes, wetlands, waterbirds, and to explore animal tracks including a resident family of 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 sun, 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 on a previous outing please bring your nature journal from that trip for an illuminating comparison.
We will meet in the parking lot at 9am. Please note this is earlier than usual. We will be on an early schedule for June, July, and August to take advantage of the nicer time of day. Parking at this location 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.
