Marin County Parks and Open Space Department

Every day, Marin County Parks and Open Space staff is working on a variety of projects to take good care of our parks, preserves, trails, and recreational facilities.

Aramburu Enhancement Project

We are partnering with Audubon California to restore the 17 acre Aramburu Island Preserve in Richardson Bay. Aramburu Island is choked with non-native, invasive plants, making it poor habitat for native wildlife. MORE

Integrated Pest Management

Marin County departments have an important role in minimizing pollutants at county facilities. The county's Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program helps reduce pesticide use and protect the health of the public and environment. Marin County Parks is responsible for managing the IPM program. MORE
