    We selected the streak we did climb because a side view suggested it might not be as steep at the top as other lines we examined, but the view from underneath still shocked us so much we just stopped looking and thinking about what was up there.

The Future of the California CondorCommunity Meetings To Discuss Future Of California Condor

Pinnacles National Monument invites the public to a series of Community Forums to discuss how we can work together to help the California condor survive in the wild. We would like to hear everyone’s ideas and concerns. Pinnacles will provide the latest information about how our 13 free flying condors are doing.

Pinnacles would like to expand the discussions in light of the recent traumatic recapture and emergency testing for rodenticides and lead in its California condors. Only one of the 13 birds from the monument underwent chelation treatment (the process of removing a heavy metal from the bloodstream) but all of the birds are at risk of re-exposure.

Additionally, anyone interested in establishing a Friends/Partnership Group for Pinnacles, please come to a meeting at San Benito Co. Library on Friday, July 21 from 12:00 – 5:00 pm.

General park information can be obtained by visiting the Web site or by calling (831) 389-4485 extension 0.
