About the Tam Van

In a quest to educate current park users and inspire new audiences to explore the parks, One Tam created the “Tam Van” mobile visitor center: a retrofitted bread truck that travels to park sites and communities across Marin County. Staff and volunteers dispense maps, trail guides, program information, and friendly advice on how people can make the most of their visit. Since 2015, it has been providing many of the functions of a visitor center, at a fraction of the cost of constructing a permanent facility, and it reaches new audiences that find it difficult to get to the parks due to distance or limited transit options. 

The Tam Van is largely funded by Measure A. Thank you Marin County residents!
