Buried Jetty at Goat Rock Beach to be Studied

Mar 6, 2014

The Goat Rock State Beach Jetty lies beneath the sand near the outflow of the Russian River into the Pacific.

  The flat rocky connection between Goat Rock and the adjacent State Beach is NOT the Goat Rock Jetty. That’s a parking lot, but the jetty is rock wall now buried beneath the sand at the mouth of the Russian River. It’s also the subject of a new study that gets underway today, and here’s what that’s all about.

While the study of the Goat Rock State Beach Jetty is underway, the beach will remain open to the public as usual and every effort will be made to avoid disturbing the seals and sea lions that congregate on the sand nearby.
