a running trail with stops along the way to do push ups, pull ups or sit ups.... a place for biking that coordinates with Marin Bike paths. safe spaces to do outdoor talking circles and meetings. Places where we learn about the natural environment and how to preserve and protect the limited resources we have. It would be ideal to water refill stations, citizen science sites that are being monitored by community partners including Tomales Bay Watershed Council, NMWD and/or EAC. Places where youth and senior felt they could do some of the work to capture data that tells us how well we are managing and protecting our limited resources. Places to sit, places to walk, bike and run without competing with traffic. Places where people could gather outdoors without having to pay money. Projects that helped keep the CLAM neighborhood clean-Green Team Project and Sunrise Hub and/or WMClimate Action. Places where exchanges could happen for extra food and/or items like clothing/furniture and or equipment.

There needs to be a center of the community that values the basic principles of resilience and capacity building amongst our local population and resident community. If community partners can begin again, to hold some of the climate action areas and provide meaningful opportunities, great! We need engagement where it isn't a pay to play model. For now, it feels like CLAM will be part of reintroducing us as a community to the basic elements of community engagement and capacity building through this process. Because the new neighborhood is asking questions we have not asked before, especially climate action areas and specific needs of the community, the results are available for CLAM to harvest and share. I hope what we learn, other community partners can self identify as these are things our community based organization can do. These we cannot do. If CLAM can role model how to invite this type of engagement, perhaps other stakeholders and CBO's will catch on and start to develop program that are integrated and inclusive and benefiting the coastal communities we inhabit. .

walking tours, historical exhibits and open mic talks with Dewey Livingston and others including Coast Guard. It would be ideal to have images/stories and information of places we may be interested in that tell us where we have been and where we are going.... It would be good if the history was inclusive of the indigenous, immigrant and diverse demographics in the area today. The history needs to be relevant and agreed upon to the people who we/are most impacted.

Murals, mosaics, public art, sculpture, plain air painting, theater, music, open mic, spoken word, film nights, etc. All of it would be wonderful to weave in to the planning or programs in the coast guard neighborhood. Beautification projects are the gateways we have to expressing whats most alive in our community. We need to partners with all of the artists, musicians, performers, writers, and educators on how best to do this work in our neighborhood and community. The entrance to the neighborhood with flags initially is a wonderful way to begin to demonstrate how the arts can inspire, enhance and invite the community to engage.
