"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain
is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as
fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life."

- John Muir

Sims' Pond

Scirpus spp.What used to be a pond for Sims' Bait Shop is now a thriving riparian habitat full of cattails, Red-Wing Blackbirds and Black-Crowned Night Herons. The plethora of Herons roosting in the massive Black Willows squawking with the songs of Blackbirds create a cacophony onlyWhite Pelicans in Sims' Pond surpassed by the zooming Pacific Coast Highway nearby. Fortunately for the birds and wildlife, the pond is densely bordered by Native Mule Fat, Black Willows, Tule Grass and Cattails.
