Point Reyes National Seashore will Support Some State Park Operations in Order to Protect National Resources
Contact: John Dell’Osso, 415-464-5135
Point Reyes National Seashore will provide enhanced law enforcement, support maintenance operations and provide natural resources protection within Tomales Bay and Samuel P. Taylor State Parks, announced today by National Park Service (NPS) Superintendent Don Neubacher.
Point Reyes National Seashore administers over 95,000 acres of interlocking county, state and national parks and private lands within a Congressionally legislated national park boundary in Marin County. Since the development in 1994 of the Final Report: California Coordinating Committee on Operational Efficiencies, Point Reyes, Tomales Bay and Samuel P. Taylor management have developed a strong partnership with integrated park operations.
"The result of the state park budget crisis and the reductions in state park services within our partnership will adversely affect NPS resources and visitors’ experience to Point Reyes National Seashore," said Point Reyes National Seashore Superintendent Don Neubacher.
NPS will provide staff and support for one year to the operations at these two state park units because it envisions direct and detrimental impacts to national park resources if they are not protected.
Working with California State Parks, NPS support will allow public access to beach and key recreation entry points; open restrooms and campground loops; and provide public safety and resource protection in these areas that straddle NPS and state park boundaries.
