My interest in the natural history of mammals and birds has also compelled me to work as a Winter Wildlife Docent at Point Reyes National Seashore.

During the high season (January through April), a team of people head out to Point Reyes each weekend to discuss the natural history of elephant seals, who come to birth their young and mate during this time. We also tell the story of the grey whales who are also passing by the LightHouse at Point Reyes, with upwards of 90 whales seen on one day. Some visitors even see orca whales, sea otters, harbor seals and other wildlife joining the wild kingdom at Point Reyes. I enjoy telling the fascinating story of California wildlife to people from all over the world who come to the most western point in the United States.
