Abbotts Lagoon - Point Reyes National Seashore

Abbotts Lagoon is a two-stage lagoon on the northwestern coast of the Point Reyes National Seashore, southwest of Tomales Point, in California, United States. The upper lagoon is a fresh water impoundment which overflows into a lower brackish level with occasional winter tidal exchange.

The varied terrain makes for an abundance of birds and plants and even river otters (which much to my frustration have eluded me!). You'll encounter shorebirds at the beach, migratory birds at the lagoon, and friendly sparrows in the brambles and perched along the fence of the pasture. The pasture is particularly active. In addition to regular grazing cows and deer, I've seen a bobcat on the hillside, a burrowing owl, and a Great Blue Heron hunting (successfully). Cob webby thistle can be found along the beginning of the trail. The predominant color of flowers is yellow: Yellow Bush Lupine, Coast Tarweed, and Shortpod Mustard along the trail, California Goldenbush, Muskflower and Seep Monkeyflower in the marshy wet areas, Seaside Woolly Sunflower covering the cliff tops, Yellow Sand Verbena, Beach Suncup and Gumplant in the sandy dunes,

West Marin County California

West Marin is the largest rural region of Marin County, California.

The West Marin Chamber of Commerce includes seven unincorporated communities in its definition of West Marin: Point Reyes Station, Olema, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Tomales, Dillon Beach, and Inverness. West Marin is generally considered to be west of Muir Beach and Nicasio on the Pacific Ocean side of Mount Tamalpais.

The Point Reyes Light is a weekly newspaper covering West Marin, and the website of the Marin Independent Journal has a category for West Marin news. And KWMR is their public radio station.

West Marin landscape -- Unlike the rest of the county, which is served by Golden Gate Transit, West Marin is served only by Marin Transit, which connects to Golden Gate Transit lines at Marin City and in the San Geronimo Valley, among other locations.

The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin, active since the 1970s, focuses on environmental issues such as preserving open space and protecting vulnerable species.
