"Natural diversity is very high on the Point Reyes Peninsula due to the mix of marine, brackish, and freshwater ecosystems along with a large number of wetland and terrestrial ecosystems found there. If you enjoy the beauty of natural environments, or rural settings you will enjoy browsing through this guide and perhaps planning a trip to see it yourself."

This spectacular, west-looking, low-oblique photograph highlights the Point Reyes National Seashore located approximately 35 miles northwest of San Francisco. The U.S. Congress created a national preserve in 1962 to include Point Reyes, a triangular peninsula. It is an area of exceptional beauty, with blunt headlands jutting into the sea and grass-tufted dunes lying along sheltered beaches. Within the preserve is the high, forested Inverness Ridge which has a grove of coast redwoods. Offshore rocks house many bird rookeries and sea lion herds. The famous San Andreas Fault (partially filled with water in Tomales Bay) can be seen passing northwest-southeast along the east side of the park. Point Reyes was visited by Sir Francis Drake in 1579.
