Here and Now (2015)

Here and Now weaves together social justice, land conservation, human history, and scientific knowledge into a cohesive and moving story about what’s possible by working together. We learn about four innovative partnerships between Native Americans and land conservation organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Audiences will travel to mountain tops, valleys, and the coast to hear from local tribes, a working farm, a local land trust, an open space district, and a national land trust. We see how access to almost 1,000 acres of land in the Bay Area changes lives today and creates a new future.

The organizations featured in the Here and Now film are Amah Mutsun Land Trust, Kashia Band of the Pomo Indians, Pie Ranch, Sempervirens Fund, Midpeninsula Open Space District, and The Trust for Public Land.

The film is made possible with support from The Christensen Fund, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, and The Trust for Public Land. It was created by Plus M Productions and produced by the Bay Area Open Space Council.
