“largest intact coastal dune ecosystems on earth”
The Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Complex is comprised of 18 miles of coastline and is one of the most ecologically significant and largest intact coastal dune ecosystems on earth. A significant portion of the nearly 22,000 acres is under public management and open for recreation. The Dunes Center was finally opened in 1996 in a small storefront in central Guadalupe and evolved, over time, into our current existence. In 1998, the Dunes Center, seeking non-profit status, was adopted by the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County and eventually became an independent and thriving non-profit in 1999. We have a thriving education program, reaching over 4,000 students annually. We offer docent led walks in the dunes. We have guest speakers for our volunteers, members, and local community. We have quarterly Members Events. In addition, we are the Administrator of what is known as the Dunes Collaborative—a coalition of state agencies, federal agencies, local governments, and nonprofits.
