Imagine spending an afternoon gazing out at the ocean, sipping on local wines and nibbling locally made cheeses, barbecued oysters and other tasty treats. Now add good friends, live music by Belles of the Levee, a wine pull and fabulous auction items, all in support of a good cause. Together, you have Wine by the Sea! This annual fundraising event generates the funds needed for Friends of the Dunes to provide free outdoor education to local schools, protect and manage rare coastal dune habitat, and much more. Tickets on sale at Wildberries Marketplace, friendsofthedunes.org/wine-by-the-sea/ and at the Humboldt Coastal Nature.
