Come learn about our local beach dune habitat!

At MLML, we study not just the marine environment, but the interface where the land meets the sea. The construction of our current lab facility included the restoration of the surrounding beach dune habitat. At this year’s Open House, the MLML Central Coastal Wetlands Group will be giving 30 minute tours the beach dunes, starting at 10 am and 2 pm both Saturday and Sunday.

These tours will include fun information about our fascinating location, from dune restoration efforts and wildlife such as legless lizards, to Native American history and the excavation of Native middens on our lab site.  The poppies and lupine are in full bloom, painting our hillside in splahes of purple and gold. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience this beautiful coastal habitat for yourself!
