Using Park Resources
to Teach, Inspire
and Motivate Students
Last year thousands of students visited our Coast Miwok roundhouse, toured the historic Point Reyes lighthouse, and watched elephant seals and migratory gray whales in their natural habitats.
We are full for the 2013-2014 school year, except for elephant seal programs in February. If you would like to schedule an elephant seal program in February, please call me at 415.464.5139.
