Working to sustain the Bay Area’s healthy ecosystems

We collaborate with other groups to conserve landscapes in the San Francisco Bay Area, for the future generations who will call this region home.

Our goals are to maintain and, where possible, increase the Bay Area’s remarkable biodiversity, ecosystem services, and nature-based recreation opportunities. In order to achieve these objectives, we pursue several strategies:

  • Prioritization of land acquisition and conservation easements that are grounded in science-based regional conservation planning
  • Support for initial stewardship in order to deliver real, durable conservation outcomes
  • Coordination of partnerships across the region to foster effective collaboration among stakeholders
  • Development of the most effective conservation finance structures to maximize the impact of our funding and ensure financial sustainability

Our Bay Area conservation funding supports projects in the following 10 counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma.
