The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) was founded in 1971 by a group of citizens who wanted both to protect the region from immediate threats and to foster a wider understanding of its unique qualities.
We protect and sustain the unique lands, waters, and biodiversity of
West Marin through outreach, education, and engagement.
Our work strives to provide long-term protection and conservation of the unique ecosystems and rural communities of West Marin, and serves as a foundation of environmental protection for future generations.We provide an essential voice on behalf of the area’s priceless natural resources before the many boards, commissions, and agencies of County, State, and Federal government regarding environmental issues facing our coastal communities. These communities are gateway towns to three national parks, three state parks, open space, agricultural lands and private land that require intimate knowledge and understanding of policy, science and law to help protect wildlife, habitat, watersheds, wilderness, and the coastline so future generations and can experience and enjoy them for years to come. We do this by focusing on county and community development plans, public access issues, supporting pathways for ecologically sustainable agriculture, promotion of affordable housing development, and through partnering, volunteerism, events, education and engagement opportunities.
Thanks to your support our works continues.
