In the 1950s, the vision for the Marin County coast was all too familiar: the rural area would become an extension of San Francisco, resembling Menlo Park or Malibu; hundreds of thousands of people would reside in suburban housing developments between Bolinas and Tomales Bay; an eight lane freeway would connect the Richmond Bridge with Point Reyes Station; rural Highway One would become a multi-lane freeway; and harbors, marinas, and hotels would cover Bolinas Lagoon, Limantaur Estero and Tomales Bay. At the time most people assumed agriculture in the region was dead and the county’s dairymen and ranchers would become rich selling their land to real estate developers and move their operations elsewhere. Urbanization seemed unavoidable, especially for a rural area so close to a burgeoning city like San Francisco. Rebels With A Cause portrays the ordinary citizens who did extraordinary things to save what are now the Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area from development, creating an 80 mile-long park that supports open space, recreation, agriculture and wildlife. This compelling and epic story weaves together themes of conservation, ecology, development, finance, politics and sustainability.
KRCB is making this important documentary in partnership with award-winning filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto. Rebels With A Cause will be presented nationally on PBS stations and is inspired by the books of naturalist John Hart, The Wilderness Next Door and Farming on the Edge, and conservationist Dr. Martin Griffin, Saving the Marin-Sonoma Coast. Rebels With A Cause will serve the entire nation as a model of environmental preservation, stewardship of the land, and the rebirth of our agricultural heritage. Rebels With A Cause is currently in production. KRCB is actively soliciting individuals and organizations to fund the completion of Rebels With A Cause. Additionally, KRCB invites you to share your individual parts of this larger story with us. We will be happy to forward your stories to our producers.
The successful completion of this project will, of necessity, bring to light the efforts of many dedicated people and remind us all just how close we came to losing these treasures to unfettered development and sprawl. Please join KRCB and help tell this pivotal story. Contact Nancy Dobbs, KRCB Program Development Executive, at 707.584.2000, 800.287.2722, or
