Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and California State Parks for this free webinar about the underwater archaeological discoveries at Pigeon Point. We welcome local history buffs of all ages!

The waters surrounding the iconic Pigeon Point Lighthouse on the San Mateo Coast have many stories to tell. In addition to being a regional port since the Gold Rush period, the area was also home to a major shore whaling operation from 1862 to 1896. In this online webinar, CA State Parks Director of State Archaeological Collections Research Facility Richard Fitzgerald will share about the investigations he has led at Pigeon Point, the history of the Portuguese Whalers, and what lies beneath the ocean surface.
