Jug Handle Creek Farm and Nature Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Support for our nature education center is received from grants, private and corporate donation, volunteers, and guests staying in our 1870’s historic farmhouse, cabins, and campground. Our 39 acres include a native plant nursery, vegetable and herb gardens, forests and meadows, nature trails and serves as a gateway to both the Jug Handle State Reserve and the world’s largest intact Pygmy Forest Ecological Staircase. We are located on the Northern California Pacific coast between Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

Our mission is to educate all age levels on the stewardship and sustainable use of
coastal land and water resources while providing affordable accommodations for nature lovers.
