There are still a few spaces left in the Point Reyes National Seashore Association CalNat course "local edition" Sept 23-Oct 21 on Saturdays. Immerse yourself in the natural world of the 70,000 acres that make up Point Reyes National Seashore. CalNat students are able to experience Point Reyes National Seashore in ways the casual visitor cannot, working in areas less traveled and alongside some of California's most knowledgeable naturalists. Graduates of this program are ready to take an active role in natural resource conservation, education, and restoration.
