Our Impact

Our Impact since 1962

Local. Vocal. Effective.

We are always keeping a vigilant eye on emerging and ongoing local land use issues involving open space. Our expertise and reputation commands influence with decision makers and, most importantly, we routinely deliver real environmental victories.

The Ultimate Outcome of Our Advocacy: The Permanent Protection of Natural Landscapes

As a result of our advocacy, land management agencies and organizations are better able to permanently protect natural areas at risk of development. These lands – to date over 185,000 acres of open space in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties – serve as a regional greenbelt providing places to recreate and connect with nature, habitat for threatened wildlife, and enhanced resilience to drought, wildfire, and flooding.
