You are invited to join the Wild Equity Institute and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service on a guided tour of the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge! This is an opportunity to visit a unique area normally closed to the public. The Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge is home to three highly endangered species: the Lange’s Metalmark Butterfly, the Contra Costa Wallflower, and the Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose.

Join us to learn more about the history and ecology of this one of a kind ecosystem!

The hike is schedule to last about an hour.

Meet at the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge Entrance Gate. From Hwy 4, take the “A St/Lone Tree Way.” exit. Head north onto A St. Turn right at Wilbur Ave. Turn left onto Fulton Shipyard Rd. Travel approximately 1/4 of a mile until you see a dirt pullout to your right and a chain-linked fence. There will be a sign identifying the refuge.
