|Walking Tour of Drakes Bay with Mike Von der Porten|
Learn about early visitors to Drakes Bay; Francis Drake, Cermeno and Vizcaino and take a hike to the Drake Landing site at Drakes Bay.
Museum of Sonoma County
Four hundred forty years ago this summer, Francis Drake arrived on our northern California shores. Shortly after, two other visitors, Cermeno (1595) and Vizcaino (1603), brought Europeans face-to-face with Native Californians. Then, for two centuries, the Europeans disappeared.
Learn about these early visitors and take a hike to the Drake landing site at Drakes Bay. Mike Von der Porten will lead the hike.
Mike Von der Porten has been part of the Drake research since he was 2 years old. His father, Edward, developed an outline for the Pacific World exhibition and his family\\\'s collections are among the items on display. Mike is the Vice President of the Drake Navigators Guild, the group which has been researching the early explorers since 1949. He is also Treasurer of the Sonoma County Historical Society.
