Thanks for the well written and comprehensive article (Conversation, December) on the Tamalpais Lands Collaborative (TLC). The title inaccurately stated that the TLC, with Greg Moore at the helm, is the new governing entity for Mount Tamalpais. We’d like to clarify that the TLC is not a governing body; rather it is a collaboration among the Parks Conservancy and the four public land management agencies that care for Mount Tam. As partners in the TLC, these land management agencies retain their existing mandates, missions, policies and governance over their respective jurisdictions as stated in the article. The role of the Parks Conservancy is to bring philanthropic and community support to help these agencies realize their resource protection, restoration and community engagement goals. MATT LEFFERT, DIRECTOR OF PHILANTHROPIC PROGRAMS, GOLDEN GATE NATIONAL PARKS CONSERVANCY
The Tamalpais Lands Collaborative is a thinly veiled, overpaid tool of the National Park Service. The NPS has lost its way and John Muir is rolling over in his grave, no, spinning. Protection of the environment now seems to be at the bottom of the list. We need elected officials and true community members to have oversight. We are organized and we are going to make it happen.

In our December story “Surf and Turf,” we incorrectly spelled the name of the park ranger. The correct spelling is Xavier Agnew.
