Point Reyes National Seashore Creeks


The Point Reyes National Seashore (PRNS) extends from Tomales Point at the mouth of Tomales Bay toward the town of Bolinas at Pablo Point.

It includes the watersheds that drain into:

  • Drake’s Estero
  • Abbotts Lagoon
  • Estero de Limantour
  • The Pacific Ocean

It also drains into portions of the Bolinas Lagoon and the Tomales Bay east and west shore drainages.

Point Reyes National Seashore was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 and attracts 2.5 million visitors each year. It has been recognized as an “Important Bird Area” by the National Audubon Society.
