The 3rd annual Waves & Whales 5K Trail Run and Hike was held on Saturday, May 12, 2018 on the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands in Point Arena. Participants ages 5 – 70 joined us for a beautiful day on the coast to enjoy our public lands. The date for our 2019 Waves & Whales 5K will be posted in the coming months. Follow our Facebook page for announcements for future events.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this day a successful community event! Timing results are posted here. Enjoy the slide show with highlights from the 2018 Waves & Whales 5K.
Proceeds from the Waves & Whales Trail Run will support ACORN’s environmental stewardship program, Students Protecting the Coast, which engages youth in hands‐on learning with a focus on conservation and community outreach. Students Protecting the Coast began during the 2012‐13 school year as part of the local and national campaign to include the Point Arena‐Stornetta Lands in the California Coastal National Monument. Students continue to learn about our coastal landscape and are empowered to use their voice by sharing what they’ve learned with the community.
ACORN is committed to hosting a sustainable event that honors the natural landscape and educates the larger community. The Waves & Whales Trail Run promises to be a worthwhile coastal excursion—runners can expect a rejuvenating run surrounded by natural beauty and the knowledge that they are supporting the continued stewardship of this land by, and for, the next generation.
