The Point Arena Lighthouse is normally home to a number of special events throughout the year, but due to the COVID-19 crisis we regrettably had to cancel them during the pandemic.  We are beginning to resume some of them, notably the annual Wind & Whale Celebration which we celebrated on Saturday, April 23.  We are looking forward to when we can resume the monthly Night Tours and Lighthouse Lecture Series, the Discover the Coast, and being able to celebrate the 152nd anniversary of the Light Station.
