Lands End/ Sutro Baths “shell mounds”

Hi everyone! First time using this. Hope I’m doing it right. Discovered this podcast yesterday and have been listening non-stop! Question: What’s the story on the two shellmounds (or middens) at Point Lobos/ Sutro Baths? They are indicated on a 1909 map from UC Berkeley. There is also a bit of info provided by titled “Vestiges of Lands End.” Why is it so hard to find these shellmounds/ middens/ “Point Lobos archeological sites” on a map? Would love to know whatever info there is in these shellmounds.
