Turning the Tide: Saving Richardson Bay

Documentary Film Series
Turning the Tide: Saving Richardson Bay (2006, 60 minutes)
Friday, January 26
7:00 p.m. inside the Library

Through interviews, archival photographs, and video, Turning the Tide tells the story of a pivotal event in the history of Richardson Bay, and one of the earliest environmental preservation efforts in Marin County: the dramatic community effort to block a massive, 2000-home development called Reeds Port. The film also covers the history, rescue, transport, and conservation of the Lyford House, along with the story of Rose Verrall, Tiburon’s “Goat Lady,” who donated the valuable land which now serves as the site for the house and the Richardson Bay Audubon Center. Filmmaker David Gotz will be on hand to answer questions after the screening.
