Welcome to #ParkInPlace, our series of newsletters, educational activities, and videos to keep you connected to nature and Point Reyes National Seashore while you shelter in place. 

Our programs at Point Reyes National Seashore are looking much different, but we are still here for you! We will lend support by sharing information and ideas, by encouraging exploration of the various places where we are taking shelter, and by forging new and deeper connections with each other and our shared natural world. Follow us on social media and together we can #ParkInPlace.
