This video is the intro to a DVD documentary about how a Marin County community stopped developers from filling in Richardson Bay in the early 1950s.  For more info and to obtain a copy of the film please visit the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society.

“Rosie The Goat Lady” spurned developers and gave her waterfront property to the Marin Conservation League in 1957.
