Northern California & North Coast

The northern coast of California offers a rich variety of forest, grassland, and coastal landforms.

The rugged coastline varies dramatically, from protected sandy beach coves to the sharp bluffs and sheer cliffs that plunge down into the sea. Rocky beaches provide an opportunity to study tide-pools and the inter-tidal zone, while the hillsides shelter magnificent Redwood forests.
