Connect with PRNSA from Home
PRNSA's magazine hit mailboxes this week. It was printed right before COVID-19 restrictions came into effect. While much has changed since then, the voices of three young "Stewards of Tomorrow" remind us of why our work is important.

Didn't receive the magazine? Click here to read the digital version. Please note, May classes are not available for purchase until Friday, April 17 and may be canceled due to the pandemic.

In our #ParkInPlace section below we offer you some images of Point Reyes National Seashore and a beautiful story of resilience that I hope will be a balm for the nerves.

Park Closures Update
The National Park Service announced additional closures at Point Reyes National Seashore this week. While we miss visiting some of our favorite spots at Point Reyes National Seashore and parks throughout Marin County, the closures are consistent with the Marin County Public Health Order on Parks issued on March 24, 2020. Here is a link to the most up to date closures at Point Reyes National Seashore.

We look forward to seeing you all soon. In the meantime, please keep sharing your ideas, photos, and stories! You are in our thoughts and hearts.

The Story of How a Battle Over Land
Changed the Landscape Forever

For this week's #ParkInPlace installment, we are happy to share a documentary that tells the story of how a dedicated group of "rebels" preserved land in Marin and San Francisco, including the only national seashore on the west coast! The award winning film captures the beauty of these open spaces and is a wonderful history lesson and moving reminder of the impact a group of dedicated individuals can have by working together.

If you would like to rent the entire documentary and support the local filmmakers who lovingly produced this story, you can purchase it for streaming online for $4.99 To see the first chapter of the film for free, please visit PRNSA's home page .
