Over Greenbelt Alliance’s 65-year history, we have stewarded this region’s beautiful natural landscapes while promoting the growth needed for thriving communities for generations to come. As a result, today, almost 3.3 million acres of the Bay Area’s nine counties are protected open spaces. Now, the Bay Area’s people, cities, and lands need critical help as our climate dramatically changes. Join our team to help us realize a climate-resilient region.
