The Marconi Conference Center is situated on wooded hills overlooking scenic Tomales Bay in Marin County. The California State Parks Foundation acquired the property in 1984 with Buck Trust funds, remodeled it as a conference center, and gave it to the California Department of Parks and Recreation which now operates it as a non-profit facility. The conference center operation enables these grounds to be preserved and protected, while the historical buildings constructed by Marconi await restoration.
