We do this through advocacy and outreach to community leaders and the public, and by educational events and community forums that inspire sustainability in Marin and its region. To us, “Sustainability" means staying the course, surviving over the long term, maintaining our capacity to live well and improve our quality of life, not only today but for generations to come.
We are an all-volunteer, non-profit corporation, and we invite all Marinites to join our efforts.
