Your Redwood Community Action Agency emphasized both “Community” and “Action” with the first “Explore the Coast: Sundays in the Sanctuary” event. Centered at the foot of Hilfiker lane, the mini-fest offered free kayaking, rollerskating, plein air painting and drawing, mud digs, birdwatching and other interpretive activities. 

The sunny day and opportunity to learn more about the coast brought an enthusiastically participating crowd. If you missed it, or if you were there and are looking forward to the next one, it’s only a few weeks away on Sunday, Oct. 19.

What makes exploring even more fun? Roller skates!

Free fun via kayaks and canoes.

Eureka, where the artists are.

Searching for critters.

A gift from the mud makes for a quick biology lesson.
