Dinner on the Pacific Plate

Join us for Dinner on the Pacific Plate, Point Reyes National Seashore Association’s (PRNSA) annual fundraising event (October 10) and auction (September 30 - October 14). This year our event honors our work to connect people with this amazing landscape. This annual tradition promises a fun-filled day of hikes, music, time with friends and amazing local cuisine. Guests will include 300 Bay Area park enthusiasts, members of the business community, noted naturalists, and park staff. View 2014 event photos.

Peter Forbes of the Center for Whole Communities will introduce the evening by reflecting on the power that comes from a strong relationship between people and place. We will also introduce new youth programming planned to celebrate the National Park Service’s centennial in 2016.

Funds from Dinner on the Pacific Plate support habitat and trail restoration, wildlife and endangered species protection, volunteer programs, environmental education programs for people of all ages, and scholarships that allow over 1,000 underserved children to experience Point Reyes. As federal funding for national parks continues to decrease, public support is more important than ever to ensure that Point Reyes National Seashore is protected, preserved, and enjoyed now and far into the future.
