EAC protects and sustains the unique lands, waters, and biodiversity of West Marin through outreach, education, and engagement.
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.
EAC provides 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. As the only region-wide environmental watchdog and the only environmental advocacy group in West Marin with an office and staff, EAC has the successful advocacy experience and an intimate day-to-day knowledge of the area that environmental groups based elsewhere do not have.
Since 1971, EAC has addressed important environmental issues facing our community and public lands. We work on community development plans, public access to parks and coastal areas, support pathways for ecologically sustainable agriculture, promote affordable housing development, protect wildlife, support strong coastal protections, provide environmental education, and protect Tomales Bay and West Marin’s watersheds.
