Stand up for Coyote Valley
by Justyne Schnupp, Committee for Green Foothills
San Jose’s Coyote Valley offers many irreplaceable benefits including flood protection, local farming, wildlife habitats, scenic hiking, and biking trails. Yet it’s a prime target for industrial sprawl. We can protect Coyote Valley, but need your help.
Volunteer to Protect Coyote Valley
Be part of the growing community of people ready to defend Coyote Valley from sprawl. Join our volunteers as we inform residents about what’s at stake. Our goal is to grow the base of people ready to take a stand the next time an industrial development is proposed for Coyote Valley.
About Our Stand up for Coyote Valley Volunteers
In this digital age, there’s nothing like old-fashioned, face-to-face interaction. We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about Coyote Valley and the protection of our region’s open space–and are willing to go door-to-door to spread the word. We will provide you with simple talking points, a Protect Coyote Valley shirt, a Protect Coyote Valley hat, and all the materials you need to speak with local neighbors. All you need is to enjoy conversation. We’ll have fun while protecting a regional, invaluable treasure.
You will always be with a buddy and part of a larger group walking a neighborhood. You are welcome to join any of these dates, and do not need to be available for all of them. We’ll email you instructions and meeting location one week before each canvassing event.
