Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is a 1,000-acre protected nature preserve on the southeast corner of Clear Lake. It lies between the towns of Clearlake and Lower Lake. The fragile tule marsh habitat is a vital part of the Clear Lake ecosystem. The protected habitat includes freshwater marsh, oak woodland, riparian vegetation, and grasslands, providing protection, food, and breeding areas for a variety of wildlife. The southeastern Pomo Indians lived in the area. The marsh’s archaeological sites, among the oldest in California, date back more than 10,000 years. The Pomo Indians were expert basket weavers and tule boat builders. They made bows and arrows with tools made from local stone and obsidian.
