Today's theme for is , and I'd like to share .

My name is Fiona O'Kelly, and I have been an Interpretive ranger here at Point Reyes National Seashore for the last six years, on the traditional homelands of Coast Miwok people. I've been a part of the community in West Marin for twenty years now since I first moved here permanently to work as an environmental educator for the Point Reyes National Seashore Association, running a nature & science-based summer camp and school program.

My career in environmental and outdoor education first began back in the mid-90s and led me to work with countless passionate educators who taught me about California native plants and animals, different habitats, and creative and fun activities to share all of these things with students.

I am grateful every day to have built a career out of sharing my love of nature and Point Reyes with countless visitors who pass through from all over the United States and from around the world. I'm grateful for the kids that I taught many years ago coming back and telling me that the deep connections they made here in Point Reyes have led them to continuing exploring the natural world and striving to protect it. I am grateful for my National Park Service co-workers who continue to mentor and inspire me. And I have so much gratitude for the wonderful people in this community of West Marin who share my love of this place.

San Geronimo Valley Community Center is excited to announce a return performance of Solstice A Ca****la Ensemble on Saturday, January 28th.


As we continue to mourn the loss of MALT co-founder and prominent member of Marin's community Phyllis Faber, we wanted to share this piece from an older issue of Edible Marin & Wine Country, which includes an interview with Phyllis.

In it, the author describes about how MALT came into being and how these two fearless women (Ellen Straus and Phyllis Faber) brought together ranchers and environmentalists around kitchen tables, who share so many commonalities in conservation and the love of the land, but are often pitted against one another.

It's a great read and provides some excellent historic context for how West Marin was shaped through preservation and partnership.

FEATHERS AND BONES: a two-day workshop
Feb 4 and 5, 2023, 9am to 3:00pm
80 Overlook Rd. Pt.Reyes, outdoors if possible.

This will be a two-day study of mammal and bird skulls and skeletons; bird feathers, wings, and flight; and bird and mammal feet.
We will be emphasizing how each of these structures reflects the habits of the animals.


There is nothing else quite like this workshop to help a tracker advance in the art of reading the landscape and understanding its story. We will be going through my extensive and well-organized collections.

Bring a lunch. We'll take a mid-day break to let our brains cool off! Snacks and drinks provided, $50 per day
Please register by email.
