Ranchers find allies in conservationists

May 14, 2020

Representatives from the Marin Conservation League, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, the Marin Resource Conservation District and the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin were among those who wrote in favor of the continuation of ranching, a legacy that dates back to the mid-1800s. The groups supported a proposal that the park service highlighted as its preferred alternative, which allows ranchers 20-year leases.
