Geocache Description:

781 feet



Mount Caroline Livermore is named for the Marin County woman who, with three other members of the Marin Garden Club, formed the Marin Conservation League in the 1930s. Among other things, that organization is responsible for...
  • the preservation of Mount Tamalpais
  • thwarting a plan to fill Richardson Bay by bulldozing the Tiburon hills into the bay
  • turning Angel island into a California State Park
To quote the MCL's history page...

“We really saved that from becoming a cheap Coney Island, which a Nevada firm hoped to develop,” MCL leader Caroline Livermore said later about the campaign to preserve Angel Island.

I had a great time hiking on Angel Island the day I placed this cache. It's a really beautiful place.   Thank you Caroline, wherever you are.


Note: It is not necessary to go onto any steep slope in order to retrieve the cache. Please be careful and respectful of the environment. Also, when replacing the cache, please take time to camoflaugue the edges of the cache so it does not attract undue attention.
