Support Your Park
There are many ways you can support your park:
Volunteer. Over the last few years, volunteers have contributed over 50,000 hours removing nonnative plant species, monitoring wildlife, providing information to visitors, working at the Morgan Horse Ranch, protecting the resources, cleaning up and monitoring beaches, and maintaining the trails.
Become a member of the Point Reyes National Seashore Association, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization working in coordination with the National Park Service to fund preservation projects and education programs for school groups and the public.
Purchase educational merchandise from Point Reyes National Seashore Association's Bookstores located at all three visitor centers. Proceeds from merchandise sales go toward preservation projects and education programs at Point Reyes National Seashore.
Leave No Trace. Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Learn how to enjoy your park while leaving it in as good as, if not better, condition as you found it.
