NPS Removes Old Marijuana Grow Site at Point Reyes National Seashore

The National Park Service spent part of yesterday removing trash and chemicals from a former illegal marijuana grow site in Point Reyes National Seashore. 

The illegal operation was near Laguna Trail in the Phillip Burton Wilderness. The national seashore is located just north of San Francisco, California.  

Park Rangers say they first became aware of the site in March of this year. When they arrived on the scene, they initially removed a pellet rifle and multiple containers of store-bought herbicides and pesticides. 

The clean-up continued from there. Crews removed a half-ton of debris and a dammed creek in May. Last month, park rangers and a trail crew cleared a 20’ by 20’ area to get a helicopter in to remove the remaining trash yesterday.

This isn’t the first case of illegal marijuana farms within this national seashore. A similar case happened in 2002 and 2006.

Park officials remind visitors to stay vigilant while visiting the outdoors. If you discover a grow site, leave the area immediately and report the location to the National Park Service. They have a tip line at 888-653-0009.
