One Tam Projects & Programs

One Tam combines the skills and resources of its five partners to support work that is vital to the health of the mountain, enriches the experience of its visitors, and inspires and educates a new generation of stewards. Our combined efforts include ecological restoration, trail improvements, wayfinding signage, wildlife monitoring, volunteer and youth programs,
and more.

Priority Park Enhancement Work

Redwood Creek Trail Realignment & Floodplain Restoration
This project relocated 1.1 miles of trail to improve passage while protecting the creek and its inhabitants. The next phase will focus on restoring the floodplain.
Bothin Marsh
With climate change and sea level rise, flooding is increasing in frequency and duration throughout Bothin Marsh - this project is creating a shared community vision for its future.
Roy’s Redwoods
Long loved by the San Geronimo Valley community, Roy’s Redwoods Open Space Preserve offers visitors an immersive experience in an old-growth redwood grove.

One Tam partners have responded to the urgent need to protect forests and reduce wildfire risk by developing a strategy to help forests maintain their natural resilience.
