Introduction to Point Reyes (Point Reyes)

May 15 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Curious about birding Point Reyes but unsure of where to go? Join ranger Carlo Arreglo and explore some of the park’s birding “hotspots.”  Birdwatchers of all levels are welcome. We’ll start at the Bear Valley area then drive towards the Outer Point with possible stops at Drakes Beach, A, B, and C ranches, the lighthouse area, and Chimney Rock. Each site may have up to roughly one mile of walking. Please bring binoculars. Weather can be unpredictable so bring layers and be prepared to walk on sand and hard-pack dirt trails. Bring water, lunch, and snacks. There are vault toilets and water fountains at Drakes Beach and the lighthouse area. Plan for at least a half-day of birding.

Leader: NPS Ranger Carlo Arregllo, carlo_arreglo@nps.gov
