Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership celebrated Earth Day in Marin on April 27, in partnership with the Point San Pedro Road Coalition. Volunteers spent the day removing almost 8,000 pounds of undergrowth that not only restricted fire truck access but posed as “fire fuel,” dangerous vegetation that accumulates and increases the likelihood of unusually large wildland fires. Pictured above are local firefighters and volunteers, joined by San Rafael Fire Captain Andy Rogerson (far left) and Supervisor Damon Connolly (second from left). -Photo courtesy of Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership
