‘Celebrate the Coast’ to be held May 6 at Point Arena

POINT ARENA, Calif. — The Bureau of Land Management invites the public to participate in “Celebrate the Coast,” from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, May 6, at Point Arena.

The event is free to the public and activities will be happening along the coastal trail between City Hall and the Lighthouse.

Mendocino College Field Station, found along the trail, will be offering an open house.

The BLM Ukiah Field Office is hosting the event in partnership with the Friends of Point Arena-Stornetta Lands, Point Arena Lighthouse, city of Point Arena and Mendocino College.

"Our coastal partners are vital in managing Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands,” said Ukiah Field Manager Nicholas Lavrov. “Their dedicated stewardship is an inspiration to visitors in caring for the Monument for future generations."

Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands was the first shoreline unit of the California Coastal National Monument. In 2014, the California Coastal National Monument Gateway Partners successfully advocated for these public lands to be added to the Monument.

This is a celebration of grassroots efforts to expand the Monument to include these coastal bluffs, tide pools, dunes, coastal prairies, riverbanks, and the mouth and estuary of the Garcia River.

The public can begin at either Point Arena Lighthouse, 45500 Lighthouse Road (just north of Point Arena), or the Point Arena City Hall, 451 School St.

More details about “Celebrate the Coast” can be found online here.

Situated along the rugged Mendocino County coastline adjacent to the town of Point Arena, the Point Arena-Stornetta unit offers spectacular views of coastal bluffs, sea arches, the estuary of the Garcia River and sandy beaches and dunes with eight miles of marked paths.
