Greetings Sandy,

Fall is upon us once again as we experience colder temperatures this week, and see the return the king tides, the Leonid meteor showers, breeding elephant seals, and migrating whales along Point Reyes National Seashore. 

As we approach the end of 2020, I want to share some exciting ways to stay engaged with us, and the outdoors over the next couple of months.

In addition, keep your eyes on the mail for our year-end appeal towards the end of the week, which includes a personal note from me, a coupon for the 2021 Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival, and a snapshot of how your support has helped us accomplish some big projects despite the challenges of the pandemic.

This is a great time to join our member circle, renew your annual support, or provide an a special year-end tax-deductible contribution to help us reach our fundraising efforts that allow us to protect and sustain the unique lands, waters, and biodiversity of West Marin. Our board will match your contributions up to $20,000 before December 31st, 2020, which will help double your impact for our mission. 

Thanks again for being a part of our community!

In gratitude,
