Exploring the Dunes
Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge is home to three endangered species: two gorgeous flowering plants (Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose and Contra Costa Wallflower) and a delicate butterfly found nowhere else on the planet – Lange’s Metalmark butterfly!
Generally, this refuge is closed to the public to protect them. However, once a month we have docent-led walking tours to explore and learn about this incredible refuge and its importance in the Delta.
This guided walk lasts 1-1.5 hours on a relatively flat, sandy road. Wear sturdy shoes for the sandy walk along the dunes. All ages welcome. Please note that there are no facilities on the property.
Refuge address is 501 Fulton Shipyard Road, Antioch 94509.
