So...about that water source map...and about those updates....
1. I first saw the water source map in September of 2020. Even then it wasn't accurate, being as how most of the blue dots and lines indicating water would have more appropriately been colored brown to represent the dirt and mud that was actually there.
2. This map was supposedly updated after park staff closely monitored the water situation in October of 2020. That update turned out to be a lie.
3. Recently the park service updated their website stating "As of March 30, 2021: Park staff mapped water sources and monitored water conditions at Tomales Point on a regular basis during drought conditions this last year, confirming adequate water supplies were available to the elk in the many creeks, seeps, and springs distributed throughout the reserve."
They once again provided the same map they provided in September of 2020 to go along with their update.
No matter how you feel about the elk or ranching, shouldn't the park service be held accountable for misleading the public...repeatedly? Go to change.org/pointreyes if you thinks so.
