In November 2013 the Chapter submitted comments on the Marin County Parks and Open Space District Road and Trail Management Plan Draft Tiered Program Environmental Impact Report (DTPEIR). The creation and use of roads and trails throughout Marin County parks and open space have a significant and often destructive impact on native vegetation, including is a corridor for the introduction of invasive species. The Chapter praised those aspects of the DTPEIR that would reduce impacts on native vegetation caused by the road and trail activities proposed by the Road and Trail Management Plan. However, the Chapter identified issues that the environmental impact report inadequately addressed: special-status species surveys; erosion control and revegetation; equestrian use; sudden oak death and mountain biking.
