VISION
We are building a community authored plan for the future of one of the last remaining undeveloped headlands in the San Francisco Bay Area - Point Molate.

Our mission seeks to convert the former Navy fuel depot into a sustainable rejuvenation of important historical aspects of Pt. Molate with protection and restoration of its rare native species and supporting habitat.

A true 'people's' gathering place to enjoy the wonders of the SF Bay Area, celebrate and display local craft, fruits of the earth, as well as global cultural infusion, and a place for multiple generations to learn and develop tomorrow's sustaining technologies.

DISCOVERING PT. MOLATE -
                       Connecting students to their waters.
Thirty students from the Health Academy at Richmond's Kennedy High School participated in a CFSPM sponsored experiential education field trip to Pt. Molate on February 26, 2016.  Students began their day with a field lab exercise, testing pH levels of Pt. Molate beach water which was later followed by a field lecture on ocean acidification causes and effects by Dr. Alex Madonik of the Green Science Policy Institute who also provided an interactive water purification demonstration.

The California Native Grassland Association led the students on a native grassland hike where they developed the connection between healthy watersheds ans the role of native species., while Tony Brake of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory led a presentation on the history of osprey nesting at Pt. Molate complete with long scope  observation of our osprey residents.

Sata Weisberg of the Marine Mammal Center introduced the students to the life of seals and sea lions, while Helen Dickinonson of the Watershed Project led students on an oyster discovery and Sarah Mesnick of the Southwest Fisheries Science center taught the students about the Bay Area's whaling past, including at Point Molate.
