Approximately 75 people attended the Huell Howser Memorial Hike last Saturday, February 9th at Oso Flaco Lake and a good time was had by everyone! Participants were led by two docents through Oso Flaco Lake and out to the dunes. Hikers also signed a card for a new organization called Huell Ventures that is seeking to celebrate all of the sites that Huell Howser visited.
Huell Howser, a PBS television personality, highlighted many of California’s treasures, including Guadalupe and the surrounding dunes in his television shows “California’s Gold” and “Visiting with Huell Howser.” February 9th’s hike followed a path that Huell took while filming one of his episodes. The weather was wonderful and the entire coast could be seen at the end of the boardwalk.
The Dunes Center would like to thank California State Parks for generously waiving the parking fee for the event, and Apio, Inc. for donating wonderful veggie trays filled with beautiful locally grown produce for the reception.
