  • Students work together at the Black Sands Beach overlook in Shelter Cove to install a native plants garden. - Lost Coast Interpretive Association -- contributed



Last week, the South Fork High School Earth Club planted native plants in Shelter Cove. The garden, at the Black Sands Beach overlook, was populated with native plants grown in the Mattole Restoration Council’s nursery in Petrolia.

Last year, Lost Coast Interpretive Association received a grant from Conservation Lands Foundation to plant native plants around the monument at the overlook at Black Sands Beach. In 2016, the association planted grasses with the Southern Humboldt Homeschool Community. This year, the association worked with Briar Fontaine-Parkinson’s Fifth Grade class from Redway School and Marianne Lancaster’s science class from South Fork High School.
