Naturalist Notes Webinar Series

From pinnipeds to plovers, from lace lichens to the fascinating ethnobotany of our dune flora, the natural and cultural history of our coast holds a world of wonder. Plan to explore it with Friends of the Dunes during the 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 over six Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., April 21 to May 26. Visit the Friends of the Dunes website (friendsofthedunes.org/naturalistnotes) for a full description of each webinar topic. The registration fee is $10 per webinar or $45 for the entire series, proceeds will fund scholarships for the fall Coastal Naturalist Training, a California Naturalist Certification program. Current Friends of the Dunes members and volunteers will receive a 20% discount. Interested in the series but can’t afford to pitch in? A limited number of free registrations are available.
