The Restored Giacomini Wetlands
Near Point Reyes Station, Point Reyes National Seashore, California

The south end of Tomales Bay is very shallow, a rich habitat for waterfowl. Former pastureland owned by the Giacomini Diary has been acquired by the park service and is now being restored as wetlands.

Lagunitas Creek flows out of the mountains here into its own small estuary. Improvements throughout its drainage area, but especially here near the mouth, are being made in an effort to restore a healthy run of steelhead, sea-going trout that swim upstream to breed then return to the ocean.
