This bronze sculpture was outside the front entrance. The statue depicts a Native American with a great blue heron wrapped around his right side; a bear snuggling up to him on his left side; and a falcon leaving the perch of his raised arms.

“It’s a tribute to our estuary connecting land, sea and sky with our human history."
-Mary Golden, executive director of Central Coast Natural History Association.-

The falcon was stolen from the statue in the spring of 2009, but was replaced after a fundraiser in late 2011.
