We Deliver Real Environmental Victories Locally. We are a widely acknowledged leader in protecting the coast, hillsides, forests, streams, bay lands, and farmlands in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. We have real clout with decision-makers and ensure strong environmental policies are adhered to or strengthened, taking legal action when necessary. Read more about our impact.
We Empower Community Members To Be Effective Advocates. We serve as the first line of defense for the last of our region’s critical habitat and farmland, engaging in land use decisions in their earliest stages. We work with community members on priority issues, providing them with the skills and resources they need to be successful open space advocates.

We Have A Vision For The Future. Given that we want to achieve longstanding victories, not just immediate successes, we have concrete goals for each of our areas of work. We vigilantly monitor local land use issues and take action when we have the opportunity to move closer to achieving meaningful victories. With a changing climate, predicted extreme weather events, and limits on our planet’s natural resources, our consistent voice for healthy, working ecosystems may be our best investment in the future. Check out our vision for the next 50 years – Deep Roots, Green Future.
