The Marin Open Space Trust received the Braun Award from the San Anselmo Open Space Committee on June 4, 2023. The Committee presented MOST with the award in recognition of MOST’s work in preserving the 60-acre Bald Hill summit property in 2023. This award has been given to individuals and organizations committed to open space preservation. It is named in honor of the late Ernest Braun, an acclaimed photographer and San Anselmo resident from 1948 to 2010, who supported open space preservation in San Anselmo and often donated his prints for preservation campaigns.
