Join the National Park Service as we welcome new citizens during a naturalization ceremony at Point Reyes National Seashore. This is one of many naturalization ceremonies taking place in national parks this year under a partnership between the National Park Service and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Details about the time and date of the 2015 ceremony have yet to be determined. In 2014, the ceremony took place at 11 am on Friday, July 11, at the Bear Valley Picnic Area at Point Reyes National Seashore. Parking is available adjacent to the picnic area.

The National Park Service and USCIS recently renewed a formal partnership to enhance citizenship ceremonies by holding them in national parks throughout the country. The agreement helps introduce new citizens to some of the nation's most significant natural resources and cultural heritage sites. These historic and picturesque sites provide an ideal backdrop for citizenship ceremonies, where new citizens can learn about and reflect on American identity and the responsibilities of citizenship.
