Call It Home

See a preview of this Truly CA episode.

Call It Home: Searching for Truth on Bolinas Lagoon celebrates the beauty and importance of the well known Bolinas Lagoon -- chronicling a community's debate over a decade to understand the forces affecting its future. Over the last few years the lagoon has been silting up and getting noticeably shallower. Opinions on what to do about it range from large scale dredging to no action at all. Call It Home captures the democratic but volatile debate among local environmentalists, homeowners, and fisherman in a small Northern California seaside community that helped to birth the environmental movement.
