The latter won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its reporting on the now-defunct cult group Synanon.GeographyPoint Reyes Station is located at, just south and east of the southern end of Tomales Bay, and slightly east of the San Andreas Fault just before the fault submerges down the center of Tomales Bay.Formerly an actual port and railway terminus, Point Reyes Station, CA nominally borders Tomales Bay; the introduction of European cattle and planting of European grass seed on the natural hills caused destructive erosion and a combination of small dirt dams, silting, and intentional landfill for farming raised the level of former salt marshes and has left Point Reyes Station approximately 0.8mi from the nearest tidal flats, and that after expenditure of millions of dollars and recent efforts for reclamation of the natural environment.
