Mount Tamalpais

In June, 2017, Bay Nature magazine devoted a special section to the beloved peak just north of the Golden Gate, its history, its creatures, and its problems, from trail maintenance to global warming.  What’s new is the way that the local landlords–three park agencies and a water district–have learned to pull together for the good of the place they administer, flying the flag “One Tam.” I contributed the opening piece, Meet the Mountain, and  a profile of pioneering botanist and tireless Tam hiker Alice Eastwood.
