We will explore the ecological staircase of Jug Handle State Reserve from the headlands along the Pacific Ocean to the pygmy forest to the East traversing through redwood, Douglas-fir forest, bishop pine forest and riparian habitat of Jug Handle Creek. All accessible within a few miles of Mendocino village and Fort Bragg each ecological step will highlight the unique nature of the processes of soil development and the associated plant species as well as the process of geologic uplift due to plate tectonics associated with the San Andreas Fault and tidal influences caused by repeated cooling and warming of the planet and the subsequent melting and freezing of glaciers increassing and decreasing the levels of the Ocean.
