Some Pt. Reyes favorites include: a day at the Bear Valley Visitor Center touring the reconstructed Miwok village, Kule Loklo, and taking a walk along the Earthquake Trail to learn about the San Andreas fault zone and see evidence of the 1906 quake centered near San Francisco. Alternately, a visit to the Point Blue Palomarin Field Station offers an up close look at bird mist-netting, banding, and research methods. Or for a more hands on option there is tide pooling at Agate Beach near Bolinas. In turn, Limantour Beach and Estuary provides a stunning view of Drakes Bay and miles of coastline for investigative exploration and play. Another exciting program option is visiting the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse. Or take the experience inland with group games and exploration of the redwood forest ecosystem at Samuel P. Taylor State Park.
Take advantage of all of these great options with one of our 5-day programs. These longer visits are ideal for 5th and 6th graders and enable us to do all of the options mentioned above and have time for fun team building and leadership activities. During these programs instructors also love to engage the students in an all-class resource management debate, calling on them to apply their new found knowledge of the area and make compelling arguments in favor of their development plans while taking into consideration Pt. Reyes' diverse habitats.
