On Saturday, June 22, interagency search and rescue personnel from Marin County Search and Rescue, Marin County Fire, Point Reyes National Seashore, and Marin Posse will take part in a mock search from approximately 2:00 – 7:00 pm. The mock search and rescue will take place along Limantour Road and the Bayview Trailhead.
