One Tam, the collaboration of public land agencies dedicated to the long-term health of Mount Tamalpais, hosts its third annual Science Summit on Friday, October 5 at the Mill Valley Community Center.

Under the heading “Into the Woods: Mt. Tam’s Forests in a Changing Environment,” the event seeks to unveil and explain” our current research on the health of Mt. Tam’s forest systems, the effects of climate change, and forest resiliency, and also how what we have learned fits within the context of land management and community involvement,” according to One Tam’s Monica Stafford.

“Despite its ecological riches and its protected status, Mt. Tam is threatened by invasive species, forest pathogens, wildfire, and climate change,” she says.

One Tam works to ensure a healthy, vibrant and diverse landscape for our beloved and iconic Mt. Tam. We are the community-supported partnership of Mt. Tam’s land agencies and managers that includes California State Parks, Marin County Parks, Marin Municipal Water District, and the National Park Service along with the nonprofit Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. One Team leads programs that care for our mountain, inspire our next generation of land stewards and strengthen our local community. 

The event will host 250 guests and feature 60 organizations. 

The 411: One Tam‘s third annual Science Summit is set for Friday. Oct. 5, 9am-5pm at the Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto. For business sponsorship opportunities, contact Stafford at mstafford@onetam.orgMORE INFO.
