Join a growing community of supporters who want to permanently protect Coyote Valley from sprawl. We’re building a base of supporters ready to defend Coyote Valley from the next industrial development proposal. Sign-up below!
Come enjoy coffee, snacks, and conversation. After a brief training, we’ll provide you with materials to speak with residents and Protect Coyote Valley shirts, hats, tote bags, and magnets for you to keep! Then, we’ll pair-up and go door-to-door asking our neighbors to add their names to the Protect Coyote Valley Petition. We’ll email you the details one week before each canvassing event.
Coyote Valley is over 7,000 acres of open space and farmland just south of San José and west of 101. It offers excellent recreational opportunities, local produce, flood protection, and wildlife habitat. It’s also sacred land of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band.
