It’s mission is to interpret the natural world through research, education and exhibits; to promote understanding of the evolution and diversity of southern California and the peninsula of Baja California; and to inspire in all a respect for nature and the environment. www.sdnhm.org 2 Visitor Guide Hornblower Cruises & Events, San Diego, has embarked on an exciting partnership with Cabrillo National Monument (CNM), in order to bring greater awareness of this National Park jewel, right (CNM) to complete its circle of national program-level nonprofit partners by adding a friends group, which can assist fundraising in ways not open to a Cooperating Association or the Volunteers-in-Parks (VIP) program. CNMC's goal is to expand fundraising to support our park while enhancing CNM's connections with the community - be it San Diegans or all of CNM's national and international visitors. www.friendsofcabrillo.org based on meticulous research in the fields of Early Modern Spanish and Portuguese maritime history and maritime archaeology. The ship was officially introduced to the public on Sept. 4, 2015 as part of the Festival of Sail. This newest addition to the museum’s fleet is now located at the Maritime Museum docks. The ship is open for dockside viewing during normal museum hours while interior construction and rigging continues. www.sdmaritime.org here in San Diego. There will be many opportunities in the near future to cross promote CNM online, through CNM brochures aboard Hornblower public cruise boats, and through Hornblower tour narration content during daily Harbor Tours. Additionally, Hornblower is making discount cruise tickets available at the book store, operated by the Cabrillo National Monument Foundation. A portion of these proceeds will go directly to CNM. www.hornblower.com Visitor Information A visit to Cabrillo offers tremendous views of the San Diego region and excellent opportunities to explore the natural and cultural history of the area. At Cabrillo National Monument, San Diego’s National Park, you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. Here is a list of some of the most popular activities that the park has to offer. Start your visit at the Visitor Center where park staff will orient Tidepooling The rocky intertidal zone, on the western side of Point Loma, is a window into the ocean ecosystem along San Diego’s coast. Periods of low tide cause pools of water to form along the shore in rocky depressions. In them, you may see an assortment of colorful animals, including sea anemones, brittle stars, octopuses, and a host of other creatures. Tidepools are most visible during the winter months. A low tide of 0.7 or below is required to expose the tidepools. Ask a ranger when low tide is to find out the best time to explore the tidepools. If you are interested in learning more about the tidepools and the creatures that live there, ask about show times for the film On the Edge of Land and Sea: The Tidepools of Cabrillo National Monument, which shows daily in the Visitor Center auditorium. Photo By Bill Griswold Whale Watching Each year, the Pacific Gray Whale (Eschricticus robustus) migrates from the Arctic seas to Baja California and back. From late December until the middle of March, visitors can see these enormous mammals just off the coast of Cabrillo National Monument. Check out a pair of binoculars in the Visitor Center (valid ID required), head up to the new Kelp Forest and Whale Overlook, and enjoy watching the whales as they head to and from the lagoons of Baja California. Junior Ranger Programs Cabrillo National Monument is a great place for kids of all ages. The Junior Ranger Programs are fun ways to explore the park, interact with exhibits and talk to a ranger. When you’ve finished this self-guided scavenger hunt, you can receive a Junior Ranger badge and a certificate. Inquire at the Visitor Center for more information. Hiking The Bayside Trail is a scenic twomile round trip trail that takes you through a prime example of the endangered coastal sage scrub habitat. This walk will bring you within 100 feet of San Diego Harbor, giving you close up views of the ships cruising in and out of San Diego Bay. Take time to enjoy the many sights and sounds along the trail. Remember to pack water and use the restrooms before your hike, as these facilities are not available on the trail.

Sixteenth century exploration, 19th century lighthouses and military history are all important elements here. From Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo’s journey here in 1542, to the U.S. Army’s Fort Rosecrans in World Wars I and II, Point Loma has become an area of vast historical importance. Please visit any of our numerous exhibit rooms for more information on these fascinating and complex histories. Tour Battery E bunker on the fourth Saturday of every month, 10am-4pm (Jan.-Oct.).

Spring An overcast marine layer can develop near the coast at any time of year, but this phenomenon is most common during the late spring and early summer. Locals call these times "May Gray" and "June Gloom." You'll probably want to trade the swimsuit for a sweatshirt and pants, as cloudy skies dominate and temperatures rarely rise above 70 degrees. The upside: you can pack away the umbrellas, because there's little chance of rain. Summer Ahhhh, summer in San Diego. Blissful visitors stroll the park, the air redolent with the scent of sunscreen. The city enjoys temperatures in the 80s during July and August, but fog can roll in suddenly, resulting in a quick drop in temperature. Fall Rain is rare, skies are clear, and temperatures usually hover in the mid-70s. Fall is also the time when Santa Anas hit the county. These ferocious winds howl in from the desert to the east, bringing dramatic temperature increases (daytime highs can quickly rise into the 90s), hot, dry air, and virtually no humidity. Winter November through February is the rainy season here, with chilly weather fronts roaring down from the Gulf of Alaska, delivering sometimes torrential downpours and temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Once storms move out, however, the views from Cabrillo are usually the best of the year: the rain cleanses the air and makes for crystal-clear panoramas.

Turn it in at the nearest federal lands area to receive your annual pass! We can’t think of a better way to kick off the school year than with a free pass to visit all national parks, monuments, federal public lands and waters! Starting September 1, 2015 all fourth graders and kids age equivalent of 10, attending school in the United States get their very own Every Kid in a Park pass for FREE. Fourth grade students, educators, and parents can visit www. everykidinapark.gov to get their official pass and learn more about this exciting program. For the 100th birthday of the National Park Service in 2016, President Obama launched the Every Kid in a Park initiative as a call to action to get all children to experience America’s outdoors. Today, more than 80 percent of American families live in urban areas and access to outdoor spaces is often limited. At the same time youth spend more hours than ever in front of electronic screens instead of outside. Cabrillo National Monument encourages all fourth graders and their accompanying adults to participate in the Every Kid in a Park program. With adult permission fourth graders can log onto www.everykidinapark.gov and complete a fun educational activity in order to get the pass. Educators can also get passes, download the activity for their classroom and plan a life changing field trip for their 4th grade class. Every Kid in a Park is a crucial component of a multi-pronged approach to inspire the next generation to discover all that our nation’s public lands and waters have to offer, including opportunities to be active, spend time with friends and family, and serve as living classrooms to build critical skills. In Action: Every Kid in a Park For the students of Vista Square Elementary, the opportunity to visit a National Park is one well out of their grasp. At 10 years old, many of the children report that they haven’t even left the threemile radius that encompasses their school or homes. 4 Visitor Guide Unfortunately, plagued with limited funding and accessibility, this is reality for many Title-1 schools in the greater San Diego area. For these kids and countless others in similar circumstances, an initiative such as Every Kid in a Park, can quite literally be life changing. In celebration of National Parks Week and with the financial support of the Every Kid in a Park grant, the Education Team at Cabrillo National Monument invited three 4th grade classes from Vista Square for an all expenses paid trip to visit their National Park. For perspective, out of 80 students, only two had ever set foot in a National Park. On April 20, 2016, students spent the morning entranced by 16th century living historian, Ranger Tavio del Rio, reenacting the stories of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and his crew’s journey to San Diego. With minimicroscopes in hand, VISTA Intern Andrew Rosales led students through a native plant exploration to discover the unique drought adaptations of Mediterranean Coastal Sage Scrub. Finally, Centennial Ambassador Alex Warneke discussed the unique marine ecosystems of Cabrillo, a conversation made truly special when a migrating gray whale appeared just offshore. Through these unique stories, our staff was able to inspire students to the adventures that lie well beyond their normal boundaries. This is the power of the Every Kid in a Park effort—to connect our nation’s youth to nature and make the National Parks more accessible to all Americans. For the students of Vista Square Elementary, this opportunity not only fosters their spirit of stewardship, but it expands their entire realm of possibility. News You Can Use Welcome Back, California Gnatcatcher! have all been factors leading to their decline. Fragmentation is especially problematic for these birds as they don’t normally make long-range movements.

Most would never take notice of this bird until hearing their signature call: “mewww… mewww…” much like the mew of a kitten. They don’t only eat gnats, as their name suggests: their diet consists of mostly insects including ants, flies, moths, true bugs, and some spiders. They also do not require water since they are able to get the moisture they need through their diet, like many of our other resident bird species in Point Loma. The California gnatcatcher inhabits areas of healthy coastal sage scrub habitat where they nest and feed on insects amongst plants that include California sagebrush and buckwheat in the coasts of southern California and Baja, Mexico. Coastal sage scrub habitat is becoming harder to find these days due to development and fire, but at Cabrillo National Monument, it is intact and near pristine. Cabrillo National Monument contains large swaths of this coastal sage scrub habitat, perfect for welcoming back these little birds. National Parks offer many great opportunities for viewing wildlife and Cabrillo National Monument is no exception. Our 164 acres are home to hundreds of different species of plants and animals; some of these species are listed as threatened or endangered. Please keep the following rules in mind when viewing plants and animals within the park. Never approach, attempt to catch or feed a wild animal. It is against the law and unsafe for humans and animals alike. Stay 150 feet away from marine mammals on the beach. If you see an animal that appears injured, do not approach it. Instead, alert a ranger or volunteer. Rocks, shells, plants, animals, and historic objects in Cabrillo are protected just like in a museum. Vandalism and theft are prohibited and punishable by law. Stay on designated trails at all times. Going off trail causes extensive damage to our natural resources. National Park Service Centennial “Americans are heirs to an extraordinary legacy of conservation and environmental stewardship that has protected our great outdoors for the use and benefit of all. We are blessed with the most beautiful landscapes and waterscapes in the world, and it is our obligation to make sure the next generation is able to enjoy that same bounty.” Park Service. Stemming from the ideals of such iconic early supporters as Muir, Mather, and Roosevelt, the National Park Service embarked on a noble mission to protect and preserve America’s resources for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. American’s have discovered the beauty of nature, the unique understanding that comes with perspective, and the collective knowledge of who we are and what we stand for. It is in these places that American stories and values are preserved. -President Barack Obama 2015 National Park Proclamation The beauty and grandeur of America’s public lands have captivated people for generations. Bordering on a hundred years ago now, a few daring men and women were so enthralled with these wild places that they advocated for their indefinite stewardship and preservation. Thus, on the innate human need to connect with the beauty of the natural world, America’s Greatest Idea was formed. Though many areas, beginning with Yellowstone in 1872, were previously designated as National Parks, it was not until August 25, 1916 that President Woodrow Wilson formally established the National In its first century, the National Park Service preserved well over 400 areas of cultural, historical, and natural significance. It is in these places that millions of On the eve of our centennial celebration, we reflect on the success of the past and look to the future with high hopes. As we prepare for the next 100 years, we strive to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. With the help of our vital park partners and national sponsors, the National Park Service has established a Centennial Call to Action with ongoing initiatives that will revitalize and enhance our national parks. These campaigns will encourage Americans to get up, get out, and Find Your Park. They will offer 4th graders free admission to all public lands, in the hopes that one day seeing Every Kid In a Park will become the new normal. They will encourage people to volunteer and give back to their communities. Broadly, the national centennial campaign will redefine our ideas of what National Parks are and more importantly, what they can be. 2016 will mark a great celebration throughout the nation and everyone is invited. We hope that you will join us for the next 100 years and help in not just continuing America’s Greatest Idea, but becoming a part of America’s Greatest Legacy.
