Two events are planned this weekend in Tolowa Dunes State Park.

On Saturday, biologist Wendell Wood will lead an all-day wildflower and native plant instructional hike through dune, meadow, wetlands and shore habitats at Tolowa Dunes State Park.

The event sponsored by the Redwood Parks Association and Tolowa Dunes Stewards will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This slow-paced, 2.5-mile excursion takes place in the seldom-visited northern section of Tolowa Dunes State Park. It will travel hidden trails and visit one of the park's "super" dunes with stunning views of the area and surrounding mountains.

The last mile of the hike will be walking along the beach during low tide. A handout will be provided with a list of plant and seashore species (with common and scientific names) expected to be seen along the way.

Meet at 9 a.m. at the Lake Earl Wildlife Area Information Center, 2591 Old Mill Road, Crescent City.

The group will caravan from there to the Kellogg Road trailhead and return to the Wildlife Center by 4 p.m.

Coastal weather is always changing and can go from fog to sun and wind, so layered clothing and a hat are advisable. Bring a lunch and drinking water; wear comfortable shoes for walking in sand.

For more information, call 465-6191.

On Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m., the Tolowa Dunes Stewards organization hosts its monthly beach grass pulling and dune restoration activity.
