Delta Protection Commission offers Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge docent tours


Every Second Saturday docents lead FREE tours of the Antioch Dunes, a National Wildlife Refuge that is otherwise closed to the public. The dunes are home to the endangered Antioch Dunes evening primrose, the Contra Costa wallflower, and the Lange’s metalmark butterfly. Put on your hiking shoes and grab your water bottle to explore the only wildlife refuge in the country that has been established to protect endangered plants and insects.

The next tour is Saturday, Feb. 10 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Antioch Dunes, 801 Wilbur Ave., Antioch (map). All ages are welcome and no reservations are required. It is important to note that there are no restroom facilities. Call 707-769-4200 for more information or visit the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Antioch Dunes website.
