Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center: Kathleen Goddard Jones Memorial Hike at Black Lake Ecological Area

Join the Guadalupe Nipomo Dunes Center and The Land Conservancy for a hike through The Land Conservancy’s stunning Black Lake Ecological Area or Kathleen Canyon Overlook in honor of Kathleen’s Goddard Jones’ birthday on July 8, 2022. We will explore the unique Black Lake Ecological Area and enjoy the beautiful dune habitat Kathleen helped to protect.

Just a short trek from the parking area to the lake and back, the trail spans 1.5 miles round-trip and goes through moderately steep hills and dunes and some uneven ground. It is only accessible by the public via guided hikes by Land Conservancy staff, making it a treat to be able to walk onto this pristine piece of land that Kathleen worked so hard to preserve for almost thirty years! Thank you, Kathleen.

Bring a jack, water, and maybe even your Dune Mother Guide!
