Environmental Roundtable Meetings

The Environmental Round Table is a forum facilitated by MCOSD and includes two representatives from each of the following environmental organizations: California Native Plant Society, Sierra Club, Friends of Corte Madera Creek, Marin Conservation League, Environmental Forum of Marin, and Marin Audubon Society.  The purpose of the Environmental Round Table is to facilitate a natural resource focused discussion and exchange of ideas between MCOSD and the environmental community as it relates to natural resources management and project development.  The proposed project has been presented at Environmental Round Table meetings regularly in recent meetings, supplemented by a site visit on May 12, 2021. The Environmental Round Table has expressed general support for the proposed project because the improvements would support the project objectives..
