Lighthouse Lecture Series
The most recent Point Arena Lighthouse Lecture Series featured a talk and slide presentation on Exploring Tidepools: Life at the Edge of the Sea by Carol Preston, Education and Outreach Coordinator, NOAA’s Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. We do not currently have another lecture planned, but are working on getting fascinating speakers such as local naturalists, historians, volunteers or experts presenting on topics of public interest relevant to the Lighthouse or our area. All lectures will begin at 4 p.m. and last approximately one hour, and are presented in the Fog Signal Building at the Lighthouse, 45500 Lighthouse Road, Point Arena. Admission is $5.00. Seating is limited to 40 guests and reservations are recommended, as this series has been selling out.
