Illegal signs at Home Ranch in Point Reyes National Seashore, recently removed upon community concerns.

Feelings Aren’t Facts.

Ranchers at Point Reyes Seashore have formidable allies.

The Marin County Supervisors, the Farm Bureau, the Point Reyes Seashore Ranchers Association and their lobbyists, powerful politicians are all-in with the private ranchers at the Seashore and their demands for more ranching, fewer elk, and less environmental oversight at the national seashore.

Restore Point Reyes Seashore is working to level the playing field. We inform and inspire people who care about national parks and public lands by bringing the facts to an otherwise emotional debate.

The future of Point Reyes National Seashore shouldn’t be left to the special interests and politicians, which is why we brought a lawsuit against the National Park Service in 2016, joined by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Western Watershed Project. That suit broke up the backroom deal to hand-over 20-year leases to ranchers in our national park, and required an Environmental Impact Statement and public participation in the decision to commit 28,000 acres of our national park to dairy and cattlemen for decades to come.

It’s our park and it’s up to all of us to speak for those who cannot—the land, the wildlife, the future generations who will inherit the national seashore.

It is no longer a question of whether or not we should set aside some more of the yet remaining native California landscape as ‘breathing space’. If we do not, we will leave our children a legacy of concrete treadmills leading nowhere except to other congested places like those they will be trying to get away from.”
