In April 2011 the chapter submitted comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the 2008 Easton Point Residential Development. This development is proposed for the Tiburon Peninsula, one of the few urban areas in Marin County that still supports large tracts of native grassland and several federally- and state-listed plants. Three special-status plant species grow in close proximity to and are threatened by the proposed development: the Tiburon Indian paintbrush (Castilleja affinis ssp. neglecta), Tiburon jewel-flower (Streptanthus glandulosus ssp. niger) and Carlotta Hall’s lace fern (Aspidotis Carlotta-halliae). The project would also destroy nearly 10 acres of rare Serpentine Bunchgrass grassland.

This development proposal is still under consideration by Marin County.
