One Brown Bag Lectures was offered in 2018:

A historic dairy ranch composed of many white-painted buildings surrounded by green grass and a few trees.

Date: Monday, July 30, 2018
Title: "La Vida Ranchero"
Presenter: Brandon Barragan, Interpretation Intern from the Latino Heritage Internship Program
Summary: The first Rancheros to came to the Point Reyes Peninsula over 150 years ago. Many of them are now gone and little of their history remains. Come join a Brown Bag Social on the history of the Point Reyes Rancheros. This program will be seminar style; visitors are encouraged to share their thoughts, and experiences as we dive into the rich history and culture of Rancheros. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you all there for this interactive program where we celebrate the importance of diversity in our National Parks.
