A letter from Donna Faure, our Executive Director - from October 14, 2019:
Dear Friends, 
The rental company has come and gone and so has our tent, but not the warm feelings of a day and evening with friends last Saturday.
Thanks to all who came out or sponsored the event for their support in helping us surpass expectations on every level for the 10th annual Dinner on the Pacific Plate event. We raised $309,250 in total to fund our conservation, environmental education, and community building work, including $119,000 the night of the event to support our work with underserved youth and families.
It was a full tent and I can honestly say it was the biggest crowd in the 10 years of hosting this event! Over the evening we acknowledged the contributions of Betty Anne Carlin and Steve Costa who founded the event in 2010. The hikes and tours received rave reviews and covered the park from top to bottom from the Morgan Horse Ranch to the Lighthouse, from ranching to restoration. Thanks to the talented band Dirty Red Barn and generous cocktail hour hosts, the stage was set for a delicious evening under the tent prepared by A Fork Full of Earth. Our wonderful volunteers and staff delivered the event with efficiency and smiles.
Park Superintendent Cicely Muldoon gave an update followed by a presentation on our diversity outreach efforts from PRNSA's dedicated environmental education team. The perfect weather and full moon added to the magic of the day. If you attended, please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions about the event. I hope all of you, whether you attended or not, will consider participating in a class, a camp experience, or just come by to visit our office (next to the Morgan horses) over the coming year.
Thanks again to all of our supporters and lovers of the Point Reyes National Seashore. 
Donna Faure
Executive Director


Our annual fundraiser, Dinner on the Pacific Plate, supports habitat and trail restoration, wildlife and endangered species protection, volunteer programs, environmental education programs for people of all ages, and scholarships that allow over 2,500 children connect to and understand the natural world.

This year we celebrated our 10 Year Anniversary of Dinner on the Pacific Plate. As we looked back at the impact we have made through funds raised at the dinner since 2010, it was our great pleasure to honor the two people most responsible for the event's inception and success: Betty Anne Carlin and Steve Costa. Thanks to their energy and passion, we have raised $1.8 million dollars to support our year-round environmental and conservation work. With your ongoing support we will continue to protect and preserve biodiversity, and share this inspiring landscape with everyone.
