Here at Point Reyes, rugged cliffs rise from sea mists, rolling pasture lands are bounded by coastal forest, and natural and human history intersect in a remarkable and dynamic way.
Nearly a century ago, the National Park Service was created by citizens who believed unique places of beauty, wilderness, and history belonged to all Americans and deserved to be preserved and enjoyed forever. Point Reyes National Seashore is one of these special places. Rescued from development in the 1960s, the Seashore was incorporated into the National Park system in 1962 as a symbol of our coastal heritage.
Today, our park needs continued support to help care for the unique natural, cultural, and recreational resources found here. This coastal gem is made up of over 80 miles of undeveloped shoreline, extensive historic pastoral lands, more than 147 miles of trails, magnificent wildlife, and the greatest avian diversity of any National Park. It is an unparalleled outdoor classroom and playground for visitors of all ages.
Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA) was created in 1964 as a nonprofit partner to support the park. Our ongoing activities include operating three bookstores in the park and conducting environmental education programs that reach nearly 4,000 participants a year. PRNSA also raises funds for numerous restoration and enhancement projects like the Giacomini Wetland Restoration Project. With the support of friends, members, and donors, PRNSA continues the legacy of good stewardship so that future generations will enjoy the legacy we were fortunate enough to receive.
We offer you a chance to deepen your connection with the Seashore through our environmental education programs and to support the park by becoming a donor or volunteer. Our programs and services include:
