Ongoing efforts in Asilomar State Park have restored an overused landscape to a thriving sandy dune habitat. Some of the species that have benefited from this effort are the Menzies’ Wallflower, Tidestrom’s Lupine, and the Black Legless Lizard. In this class, we will explore and map the dune habitats of Asilomar, walking and recording the landscape from the shoreline to the Monterey Pine Forest, creating plan view maps and cross sections. Along the way, we will learn about dune forming processes, the flora and fauna characteristic of this habitat, and the restoration efforts both completed and underway.
