What’s Going On in the Park: late Feb 2009

Here are some highlights from the National Park Service Park Wavelengths newsletter:

  • Daffoldils in bloom across the old bulb farm near the Hostel. Visitors may pick 6 flowers per day for personal use.
  • Harbor seal pupping season begins Mar 1. Drakes Estero closes to boating and South Blue Gums Beach on Tomales Bay close from March 1st through June 30 to allow seals to come ashore and deliver their pups in peace. 
  • Elephant seal numbers continue to drop as the season winds down. 
  • Males have dropped their antlers for the year, and are feeding and resting now, they’ll start the annual process of growing antlers again in May to prepare for the late summer breeding season.
