Animal Planet’s Forrest Galante Takes to the Open Road

Forrest

Forrest Galante is a wildlife biologist and expert forager whose amazing animal interactions have earned him the international reputation of being the perfect combination of Steve Irwin, Bear Grylls, and Jacques Cousteau. His hands-on approach to wildlife, paired with his biological education, understanding, and respect for the natural world, sets him far apart from your everyday adventurer.

Drive

The noise and busy skyline of San Francisco yield to the natural rhythms of crashing waves and towering redwoods with this iconic drive along Highway One’s Sonoma Coast.

Enjoy the beauty of this rugged drive as well that of the destination. Take a moment to unplug as you meander your way up the coast, stopping every once in a while to sink your toes into the sand and breathe in the salty air.

Stay

Settle in at Timber Cove Resort. This cliffside get-away hosts the character of its 1960’s seaside roots, with the comfort of its recent multi-million dollar renovation.

Gualala

Pronounced wa-LA-la, this enchanting seaside town was named after an old Kashaya Pomo Indian phrase meaning “Where the water flows down.” Take a day trip to explore the area’s rich soils and stunning waterscapes by foot, bike, or kayak.

Forage

A firm believer in self-reliance, Forrest is an expert at foraging foods in the wild. Every November Forrest and his friends take a trip to Gualala which he says is home to some amazing mushroom species clams, berries, nettle, flowers, and more.
