Naturalist Notes Webinar Series

Plan to explore it with us in our new Naturalist Notes Webinar Series! Join six dynamic experts as they share stories of the captivating creatures, plants, and people of California’s Northcoast dunes. The Naturalist Notes Series will take place six Wednesday evenings 7 pm to 8 pm, April 21st to May 26th. Visit our website for a full description of our webinar talks.
