Presentation, plant walk at Tolowa Dunes

Triplicate staff

Several presentations about Tolowa Dunes are scheduled this month.

They include "Amphibians and Reptiles of Lakes Earl and Tolowa," scheduled 1-4 p.m. Sunday and a "Native Plant Walk and Dune Restoration " event scheduled 1-4 p.m. July 15.

Herpetologist Bradford Norman will discuss the area's reptile and amphibian species Sunday, then show participants where to find specimens of them.

Carry water and snacks. Wear long pants and adequate clothing to protect against mosquitoes.

Botanist Laura Julian leads the July 15 dune walk, a 2-mile walk to see Del Norte County's oldest and largest living dune, and tells about its plants, some of which have survived for centuries.

Participants can help volunteers restore the area by removing invasive non-native European beach grass, which is destroying dune habitat for plant and animal species.
