Goat Island Natural Area

Map     Satellite

Goat Island lies a few meters off the Mendocino Headlands and supports an excellent example of coastal prairie vegetation. On the steep sides of this flat-topped island is some typical north coastal bluff scrub.

A number of birds use the area as a roosting site.

There are wave-formed caves on the island.

Integrity: Virtually pristine.

Use: Research, educational, observational.
