Point Reyes is a really cool place both geologically and biologically. Located north of San Francisco, this oddly-shaped peninsula sits on the Pacific plate while the land to the east of the peninsula sits on the North American plate. Point Reyes has traveled up the California coast along the San Andreas Fault and continues to move northward.
Point Reyes is home to a huge diversity of birds and marine life. This weekend, the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin will be hosting a birding and nature festival full of birding expeditions with the experts, elephant seal watching trips, tidepooling, and field sketching.
Stop by on Saturday, April 26 and say hi! I will be setting up a booth to sell my artwork, cards, and pendants (and will probably sketch a few birds while I'm up there). Hope to see you there!
