Introducing young people to the wonders of nature has been shown to improve their overall well-being and readiness to learn and places them on a path to becoming good stewards of the natural world as adults. Whether you are a teacher or a parent, Point Lobos offers magnificent opportunities for both an introduction to the environment and for continued learning.
Staff and volunteer docents offer guided on-site or virtual field trips for schools, an intensive summer camp called Summer Adventures and a seasonal Junior Ranger program for visiting families. Additionally, young people can now learn more about the wealth of natural resources in Point Lobos from their iPad with the Discover Point Lobos app. Find information about each of these resources below.
Point Lobos is a natural reserve, not a park. Afforded the highest level of statewide protection, the purpose of a reserve is to forever protect an area of unique natural beauty and ecological significance.
Stay on marked trails, do not collect natural objects of any kind, and please do not disturb wildlife in their natural habitat.
