Once thought to be extinct, Tule Elk are making a remarkable comeback at Point Reyes National Seashore. Enjoy a day shadowing these majestic survivors with a nature writer who has assisted park biologists with tule elk studies and the annual elk census for over 16 years. As we hike along scenic granite ridges between Pacific Ocean cliffs and the wilderness shoreline of Tomales Bay, we'll explore the role tule elk played in California ecology for thousands of years, the reasons they nearly vanished forever, and what we can do to help them continue to thrive. With scores of large-antlered bull elk actively competing for females in the annual rut, we'll have many opportunities to observe breeding season action and herd dynamics up close through spotting scopes. Open to youth (age 15-17) with attending adult.
