Magical Mt. Tamalpais

Nurturing a famous mountain the way it nourishes us.

Explore Mt. Tam's East and West peaks with a filmmaker who is passionate about preserving this Marin County landmark (Published Tuesday, June 9, 2015)

 

Doug climbs to the summit of Mt. Tamalpais' East Peak and gets to know Gary Yost, a fire lookout volunteer and a man with a huge passion for the mountain and a commitment to its future.  Gary also devotes his time and talents as a volunteer filmmaker to support One Tam, an exciting new joint venture of four public land agencies and their non-profit partner to manage the mountain and its watershed cooperatively as a single ecosystem. Gary and a One Tam partner take us to the mountain's West Peak to see the remains of a long-abandoned cold war era Air Force facility which they hope to remove one day so the mountaintop can be restored to its natural condition.
