Seabirds and Marine Mammals of the Redwood Coastal Trail

Instructor: Keith Bensen, B.S.
Date: Saturday, May 13, 2017
Location: Meet at Lagoon Creek Picnic Area on Hwy. 101
Tuition: $60


Redwood National Park wildlife biologist Keith Bensen will share insights into one of the most productive stretches of ocean in the world. Our field trip begins on a promontory overlooking the mouth of the Klamath River where it joins the Pacific Ocean. Learn the principles of physics, geology and biology that have created the richest marine feeding ground on the West Coast. We’ll observe migrating whales before descending on the Redwood Coastal Trail into an old-growth Sitka spruce forest bejeweled with many fern species, spring wildflowers and fungi. Occasional openings through spruce curtains reveal spectacular views: and rugged cliffs where abundant wildlife – seals, sea lions and seabirds – bask and feed on rocks below. Keith will guide us to a rookery for threatened Stellers sea lions. We’ll eat lunch on an isolated beach, then continue our brisk hike up to the bluffs to view the state’s fourth largest seabird colony.
