EVENT CANCELLED!!! (Second Chance Elk Rut!)

  • McClures Beach Trail Pierce Point Rd Inverness, CA, 94937 United States (map)

Hi all,

Due to the poor air quality, this event is being CANCELLED. Our apologies to everyone who was planning to come. Stay safe in the smoke!


In November we will hike back out to Tomales Point for a second chance or a double dose of the Tule Elk!  There should still be some of the mating season behavior at this time of year and we will get an opportunity to document it in our journals. 

We will meet at 10 am at the McClure’s Beach trailhead parking lot at the very end of Pierce Point, PAST the parking lot with the old white barns (McClures Beach Trail, Inverness, CA 94937). Look for people standing around with sketchbooks. This excursion will go longer than our usual meetup to take advantage of this special opportunity. 10am-4pm, potluck lunch at 12:30.

Bring your own drawing supplies. $20 suggested donation.

RAINY DAY BACKUP PLAN: If lots of rain is in the forecast, check the morning of the event. We will go to the Bear Valley Visitor center in Point Reyes where we can sketch birds and landscapitos from the covered porch or sketch any of the fine collection of taxidermied animals inside. Last time I was there during a rain I saw and journaled a sharp shinned hawk hunting a song bird in the bushes just yards away! The address is 1 Bear Valley Visitor Center Access Road, Point Reyes Station, CA 94956
