Our members are families who have owned and operated small ranches within the pristine landscape that is now the Point Reyes National Seashore. These families’ history working their ranches spans back to the 1800s and they are proud to have partnered with the National Park Service to create the Point Reyes National Seashore in the 1970s. This partnership has provided our community with the unique opportunity to experience the thriving relationship of traditional animal husbandry, local food production, and undeveloped California coastline.
To our dismay, three organizations have sued the National Park Service with the clear intention of removing both ranching and our families from the Point Reyes National Seashore lands that we have cared for for generations. We, as individuals rather than the association, are intervening on the side of the Seashore Superintendent Cicely Muldoon and the National Park Service in the case RESOURCE RENEWAL INSTITUTE (ET AL.) V. NATIONAL PARK SERVICE.
With no choice but to fight for our homes, our livelihoods, our history, and the food we produce, we are seeking financial support to help cover the full cost of our Legal Defense.
Please consider giving a tax deductible donation to help us and the National Park Service protect the working partnership established long ago, keeping small family sustainable ranches producing local food.
