Tule Elk Herd
Tule Elk Herd on Tomales Point

TOMALES POINT (2,781 acres) - This unit encompasses all of the land on Tomales Point north of a fence from Tomales Bay to the Pacific Ocean (in place to create a Tule elk reserve.) It supports grassland, mixed coyote brush scrub, and dense bush lupine stands at the northern tip of the peninsula. In 1978, tule elk were reintroduced to Tomales Point, and in 2006 herd size was approximately 430 animals. Populations of ten plant species of management concern occur in this FMU; six of these are federal Species of Concern and one, Point Reyes blennosperma (Blennosperma nanum), is listed as rare by the state. The historic Pierce Ranch Complex, which has grounds that support a variety of associated invasive non-native plants (e.g., eucalyptus, cape-ivy) is within this FMU.
