Four hundred forty years ago this summer, Francis Drake arrived on our northern California shores. Shortly after, two other visitors, Cermeno (1595) and Vizcaino (1603), brought Europeans face-to-face with Native Californians. Then, for two centuries, the Europeans disappeared.
Learn about these early visitors and take a hike to the Drake landing site at Drakes Bay. Mike Von der Porten will lead the hike.n, some snacks may be available.
