Visit the Dunes

Leave a comment



Due to the sensitivity of the habitats and the endangered species, the refuge is not open to unsupervised use by the public. However, refuge staff and local educators conduct on-site environmental education efforts through special events and monthly guided tours, typically the second Saturday of every month. Volunteers also regularly assist refuge staff with habitat restoration projects and endangered species surveys.


Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge [Stamm Unit] (Contra Costa County), 1551 Wilbur Avenue in Antioch, 94509.


From 680 heading north (near Walnut Creek/Concord), take Hwy. 242 E, which will lead you onto Hwy 4 E towards Pittsburg/Antioch.

From 680 heading south (from Benicia/Martinez), take Hwy 4 E towards Pittsburg/Antioch.

At Antioch, take “A Street/Lone Tree Way” exit and go LEFT under freeway. Proceed about 1 mile on A Street and then go RIGHT onto Wilbur Avenue. Continue on Wilbur Ave. until you reach the Fulton Shipyard Rd/Cavallo Rd intersection. Turn LEFT and follow Fulton Shipyard Rd. across the railroad tracks. The entrance gate and parking lot will be on the RIGHT, marked by a refuge sign next to the gate.
