The Berryessa Snow Mountain region is the crown jewel of Northern California's wild inner Coast Range. It is one of the most biologically diverse regions of California, and an important site for bald eagles and other iconic wildlife. The area is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities located less than one hundred miles from the Sacramento and Bay Area metropolitan regions. We are proud to stand with 100 local business owners calling on President Obama to permanently protect Berryessa Snow Mountain.

On June 25, 2013, the California Court of Appeal upheld Marin County’s plastic bag ban against a legal challenge brought by the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition. This is the latest victory for local governments against the plastics industry and its allies. We’ve asked the Court of Appeal to make its opinion an official legal precedent. If our petition is accepted, other cities will be allowed to rely on the court’s findings when defending their own plastic bag ordinances from near-identical plastics industry attacks.
