To get the most out of your visit to Point Reyes, stop by one of our three bookstores operated by the Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA). You’ll find guides that will enhance your exploration of our spectacular beaches, woodlands, and coastlines. the bookstores have natural and cultural histories, children’s books, maps, field guides, and a wide range of other useful materials. Whether you’re planning on bird watching, hiking, whale watching, or enjoying abundant wildflowers, our bookstores are the place to start.
PRNSA bookstores are located at the Bear Valley Visitor Center, the Lighthouse Visitor Center, and at the Ken Patrick Visitor Center at Drake’s Beach. All proceeds from the bookstore go to support education, conservation, and research programs in Point Reyes that would not otherwise be possible. You can help the park and receive a 15% discount on all items when you become a member of the Point Reyes National Seashore Association.
