Calla lilies have made their appearance at Point Cabrillo, and that means Spring is just around the corner!

Start planning your Spring visit to the lighthouse, just 3 hours north of the San Francisco Bay Area, between the towns of Fort Bragg and Mendocino in Northern California.

I saw sooo many of these "Milk-Drop Mycena" up in Mendocino County, CA a few weeks ago! They love redwoods (as do I!) and were everywhere. Such magical little touches of whimsy! They made me smile over and over again. 🌲

Friendly Fort Bragg ocean ambassador here to remind you to leave only footprints when you're visiting the beach. Help us preserve the Mendocino Coast for our native wildlife and pack out everything you bring in. You can help us cut down on waste by with re-usable picnic supplies and re-fillable water bottles. These little things really make a huge difference for our beaches and our 🦀friends. #ILoveFortBragg

Iconic Fort Bragg. Life is certainly opening up and we are looking forward to a bustling summer on the coast. Now's the time to book that trip! When you do come visit we want you to feel like part of the community AND we encourage you to do your part to keep Fort Bragg beautiful by keeping your footprint small. Always pick up after a day at the beach and try bringing your own reusable water bottles and utensils for take out to cut down on trash. These little will make a big difference for our small town! #ILoveFortBragg

Can you believe that this "nest" is actually a mushroom!? Well, it sure is! Let’s learn something: 👏

This species is aptly named "Bird's Nest Fungus" and it's quite a fascinating mushroom. Each of those "eggs" (scientifically known as "peridioles") is actually a capsule full of spores. When it rains, droplets splash into the "nest" and disturb the peridioles, ideally splashing them into the air. The peridioles of many species of bird nest fungi have a string attached to the end of them. When a peridiole is flung airborne, the string trails behind it and then sticks or coils itself around anything nearby that it comes in contact with.  In this way, the spores have a more auspicious chance of being dispersed. ✨💨

This mushroom doesn't look terribly small, does it? Well, it's actually quite little - on average a "nest" is typically measured at approximately 5-7mm in diameter! When I first spotted this fungus several years ago, I was shocked. Based on photos I'd seen, I had assumed they were much larger! 🍄📏
