San Geronimo Valley

San Geronimo ValleyI feel blessed to live in a place that approaches the look and feel of old California: rolling hills covered with grasses, lupine and poppies in the springtime. It’s only because of strong preservation advocates such as Caroline Livermore, Dr. Martin Griffin, former Marin County Supervisor Gary Giacomini, and so many others that about 85 per cent of Marin County is open space.

I’ve been fortunate to have interviewed some of these crusaders, and as I look out my windows or hike in my neighborhood, I am thankful for their foresight and perseverance.
