Nature’s Inspiration is Committee for Green Foothills’ premier celebration to honor an individual who has dedicated their life to protecting nature. Past honorees include Congresswomen Anna Eshoo and Jackie Speier; Pete McCloskey, Co-Founder of Earth Day; and Peter Douglas, former California Coastal Commission chief.
Our 2017 honoree is Joan Baez, local legend, famed American folk singer, songwriter and activist known for songs like ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ and ‘Diamonds and Rust.’ She has used her talent to inspire generations of people across the world to rise up and make our world a better place. Join us for hors d’oeuvres and wine as we pay tribute to Joan in grateful recognition of her lifetime of environmental and social justice activism. Our venue, Coyote Ranch, is nestled in the beautiful Coyote Valley, the 7,000+ acres of threatened greenbelt between San Jose and Morgan Hill.

Explore the Coyote Valley region by bicycle. Join us for a flat 23-mile loop. We’ll start at the Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve and bike across the valley floor along the Coyote Creek Trail to the Anderson Lake Visitor Center then head for a stop at the Spina Farm Stand, and finish the loop at the Open Space Preserve where we’ll have our picnic. Together we’ll learn more about the history, wildlife, water, and agricultural story of this area. Bring your bike, a helmet, sun protection, 1-2 liters of water, and a bag lunch. You may want to bring cash or card to buy something at the Spina Farm Stand. Speakers will include Deb Kramer with Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful and our very own Executive Director Megan Medeiros. Space is limited to 30 guests.
