Schools may make a reservation for a self-guided marine education program visit to Sonoma Coast State Park. This includes any activity on Sonoma Coast,except tide pooling for which there is a separate reservation. Docents will not be provided.
Please note: Reservations are essential for habitat preservation and the safety of the students and are REQUIRED even if schools do not request a docent. This alerts the lifeguards at the Sonoma Coast State Beaches so they are aware of large groups on the coast on particular days.
It is advisable to make your reservations are the beginning of the school year as we fill up during the months of April and May.
Additionally, because demand is high for programs scheduling can take up to two weeks, reservations are best made two to three weeks prior to the date desired.
Due to concerns over COVID-19 all field trips to Sonoma-Mendocino Coast District State Parks are cancelled through April 15th of 2020. At this time we are not taking any NEW reservations for groups prior to July 1st, 2020. If you have a pre-existing reservation that was cancelled due to COVID-19 closures and cancellations we are happy to work with you to reschedule you for the earliest available date. Please contact the Programs Manager at (707) 869-9177 ext. 1 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
