Links at Bodega Harbour. Perched along the spectacular Sonoma County Coast, the Links at Bodega Harbour was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. It’s a true Scottish seaside links course, reminiscent of those found in Scotland.

Point Reyes. Located halfway between Bodega Bay and San Francisco, Point Reyes National Seashore contains unique elements of biological and historical interest in a spectacular scenic panorama of thunderous ocean breakers, open grasslands, bushy hillsides and forested ridges. Established by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, Point Reyes comprises 100 square miles, including 32,000 acres of coastal wilderness. With 50 species of native land and marine mammals inhabiting the area, its biological diversity stems from a favorable location in the middle of California and the natural occurrence of several distinct habitats.  [Top]
UC Davis Bodega Marine Reserve. The UC Davis Bodega Marine Reserve sits on wind-swept headlands on California's north coast where a 362-acre coastal reserve meets a state-protected marine reserve. Part of the University of California’s Natural Reserve System and site of the Bodega Marine Lab, Bodega Marine Reserve is a research and teaching reserve that encompasses a unique mix of coastal habitats protected for long-term studies. While the Reserve is restricted to protect long-term field research sites from external disturbances, public hiking and horseback riding are encouraged on the adjacent park trails.

Russian River. Set along the beautiful Sonoma County coastline, the Russian River is home to many spectacular parks and several charming towns. The river enters the ocean just as it runs past the town of Jenner while the river’s mouth is also the gateway to a public section of coastline which runs 10 miles south to Bodega Bay. North of Jenner, the rugged coastline inspires scenic drives to historical Fort Ross and Gualala. The Russian River Resort Area, comprised of towns west of the Highway 101, is the most popular recreation spot on the lower river.  [Top]
Madrone Audubon Society. The Madrone Audubon Society, a Sonoma County Chapter of the National Audubon Society, promotes education, enjoyment, and protection of the natural world, especially birds. While its interests are worldwide, the Society’s focus is on the local community, the State of California, the West Coast, and the high-priority campaigns of the National Audubon Society. Madrone Audubon organizes many birding trips to Bodega Bay, including walkabouts, field trips and beginner’s bird walks. For more information, visit .
