Protecting families and fish.
Who We Are
The San Geronimo Valley Stewards are volunteers working with 2,000 Valley residents to preserve our historic family homes and natural environment. We welcome everyone and respect different viewpoints.
We educate our elected officials and our community about natural creek restoration. We partner with local government, other conservation groups, and homeowner associations.
We invite you to make a donation or volunteer your services to protect families and fish.
We participate in community-based actions to create a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.We offer various projects to appeal to different members of our community, with the goal of bringing The Valley together as one.
Get to know the residents of the Valley as they guide you through their very own backyard gardens. You’ll learn the history of their homes as well as their individual efforts to improve their land.
We bring people together and listen to your concerns. We invite government officials to visit us in the Valley and answer your questions.
We offer workshops to teach the protection of our unique Valley environment, such as fire and disaster preparation, controlling invasive broom plants, woody debris for fish habitat.
We defend your interests at hearings of the Marin County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. We analyze proposed regulations and encourage voters to speak out.
In the first test case for San Geronimo Valley, the Marin Board of Supervisors approved the reconstruction of a 90-year old home in Lagunitas and overruled Spawn's objections to the house. The five Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of the 941 square foot Saban family home. Supervisors hailed this as a model of environmentally sensitive development near the stream.
SG Valley Stewards and the neighbors of the Saban family support the project. Valley Stewards wrote letters and spoke at the Planning Commission and Supervisors hearings. We congratulate the Saban family, and welcome them to the Valley.
Our organization lives on volunteers and donations alone. Without you, we would not be here.
