North Coast Conversations: Friends of the Dunes/ Wine by the Sea

For over 40 years, Friends of the Dunes has helped to protect and conserve our local coastal environments for future generations of people, plants, and animals. In addition to ecosystem restoration, they also offer educational programs and guided walks along the dunes. Coming up this weekend is one of their largest annual fundraisers, Wine by the Sea.

This week, I'm meeting with Executive Director Mike Cipra to learn more about what the friends of the dunes offers, and how the fundraiser will benefit the organization, and the dunes themselves.

The fundraiser will be taking place Saturday, October 7th from 3-6 at the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center. Support coastal stewardship and environmental education, and enjoy music, art, local gourmet food, and wine created and poured by local wineries.
