Waves & Whales 5K Trail Run and Hike

The next annual Waves & Whales 5K Trail Run and Hike will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 on the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands in Point Arena. The Waves & Whales course begins in the cypress and pine forest and then makes itS way out to the bluffs with views of the lighthouse, Arena Cove and hopefully, whales! We invite you to join us for this community event that celebrates this beautiful piece of the coast and supports our education programs. Follow our Facebook page for event announcements.

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.

THANK YOU TO OUR 2018 SPONSORS!
