Dinner on the Pacific Plate 2013~ photo by Michael Woolsey
On behalf of the Point Reyes National Seashore Association's Board of Directors, I want to thank you for supporting Dinner on the Pacific Plate. Our annual fundraising event was a huge success raising $210,000 to fund youth scholarships and projects that preserve and maintain wildlife habitat, trails, and historic sites in the park!
It was a beautiful day of fun, learning and community building and I appreciate the part you played in making this a truly special event. The morning rain only made the park sparkle even more when the sun came out in the afternoon. One of our guests reported that his pre-dinner tour of the wetlands at high tide, post-storm, was for him a lifetime high point. I invite you to view photos from the event that were generously taken by Michael Woolsey and also visit the Dinner on the Pacific Plate page on our website for a full listing of our sponsors and supporters.

It was such a pleasure meeting the 300 guests, cocktail sponsors and the amazing volunteers who led hikes, helped with set up and provided great dinner service. I also want to thank the many in-kind donors who were not at the event, but contributed to our online auction.
During my remarks I announced that PRNSA and the National Park Service will be working together to rehabilitate and enhance the Estero Trail in the coming year. I look forward to updating you on the progress we are making to improve this much loved trail.
PS: The dinner is an annual event and I'd welcome your feedback about the things you most liked and adjustments we can make next year. Feel free to share your photos too!
