Join a Friends of the Dunes naturalist for a guided tour of the Samoa Dunes and Wetlands Conservation Area. This 357-acre ecologically diverse property features open sand sheets, wetlands, and the southernmost extent of the Shore Pine-Sitka Spruce forest in the Pacific Northwest. Located just south of the Manila Dunes Recreation Area, this property is now part of a contiguous protected area of more than 1,600 acres managed for habitat conservation and appropriate public access. As the interim land manager of this property, Friends of the Dunes is offering monthly guided tours. Participants will be required to wear face masks and maintain a safe physical distance during the walk. The walk will include walking on loose sand and up and down some moderate slopes. Space is limited and a reservation is required.

For more information and to reserve a spot, contact Friends of the Dunes at (707) 444-1397 orĀ info@friendsofthedunes.org. Directions will be provided upon confirmation of your reservation.

We are so excited that events are happening again. Event details are being updated as information becomes available. Before making plans, please check the event or festival website or Facebook page.
