Over Greenbelt Alliance’s 65-year history, Greenbelt Alliance has stewarded the 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. Learn more about our organization’s 65-year history here.
Today, we are leveraging our expertise in land-use policy advocacy and regional collaboration to realize a climate-resilient Bay Area. To us, this looks like communities and people thriving in the places they live, work, and play. Staying safe during climate disasters. Connecting with open spaces in new and powerful ways. Suffering less and recovering quickly after the next wildfire, flood, or drought. All thanks to equitable solutions drawing on the powerful role of nature.
Unique among regional organizations, our approach centers building deep, authentic connections to community members advocating for change at the local level. We amplify these grassroots voices, educate local elected officials, and build bridges across sectors to enact local change and ensure it adds up to regional impact to build a more resilient Bay Area for people and nature.
