The National Park Service (NPS) is beginning the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate potential issuance of a Special Use Permit for commercial oyster operations within Drakes Estero for a period of 10 years.  

As part of this process, the National Park Service will be hosting three public meetings during the initial scoping phase. The open house style meetings will be identical in format and are intended to gather comments from the public that will be used in shaping the EIS. The meetings are scheduled for late October at the following locations:

Tuesday, October 26, 2010
6–8 p.m.
Dance Palace Community Center
Point Reyes Station, CA

Wednesday, October 27, 2010
6–8 p.m.
Multi-Purpose Room, Bay Model Visitor Center
Sausalito, CA

Thursday, October 28, 2010
6–8 p.m.
Community Room, REI Berkeley
Berkeley, CA

Additional information on the scoping process is available at the park website www.nps.gov/pore. [Editor's note: Information about the scoping process was removed from the park's website in 2024.]
