Work continues on my Marin County Environmental History and overlapping projects. On November 8, the History’s website went live. On the 11th, I helped Gerry Warburg launch Saving Point Reyes, his inside history of the 1969 campaign to rescue the half-finished National Seashore from the budget chopping block (and much more). On November 15, I reviewed the new Marin Regional Forest Health Strategy for KneeDeep Times, the on-line magazine about coping with climate change. The good news is that these coastal forests–unlike many found inland–have a fighting chance to survive the global warming era. That’s if the managing agencies (authors of the report) can follow through on the ideas it contains. Left, the scene after a restoration burn on Mount Tamalpais.
