For a broader history of how Marin is able to uniquely exist as parkland/farmland adjacent to a major metropolitan area, I recommend watching Rebels with a Cause.
For anyone interested in helping to preserve low-cost housing availability in Bolinas, I strongly encourage donating to the Bolinas Community Land Trust.
And as a final note on culture: for anyone considering purchasing in Bolinas, it's important to be mindful that it is important to actually _live_ there. There is a limited supply of housing, and vacation homes/rentals have a serious, negative, cultural impact on the town compared to full-time residents who will participate in the community over time.
