Measure A funds at work
Measure A's quarter-cent sales tax supports parks, open space, and agricultural lands across Marin. These funds can't be used for any other purpose. The existing Measure A has not only supported Marin County Parks
facilities and programs but also become an important funding resource for city and town parks and family farms that contribute to Marin’s food supply.
In 2012, DogTrekker.com supported Parks Measure A and voters approved a one-quarter of one percent sales tax (County Ordinance 3586) to support parks, open space, and agricultural lands across Marin. This is a Measure A Extension that we need to say YES to.
Here is more information on the Measure A Extension
and a look at all of the projects that the original Measure A funded

At the Stanford Inn, being eco-minded is not just a buzzword!
A 2022 report from Expedia Group explores the brand principles that travelers value: a commitment to sustainability, small crowds, local businesses and mental well-being top that list. At the Stanford Inn, these values aren’t just buzzwords. Since the early 1980s, owners Joan and Jeff Stanford have been guided by a purpose-driven, light-on-the-land mindset. That ethic influences everything at the resort, including room amenities, menu items, guest programs, conservation practices and even cleaning products. more »
