Golden Lands, Golden Opportunity identifies Bay Area lands that provide vital public benefits—but are still unprotected.
With success stories and facts about each county, the report is a celebration of our “golden lands” as well as a call to action to fully protect our greenbelt. It includes:
- Golden Opportunity:
A description of the benefits of Bay Area lands, and the challenges and need for a coordinated strategy for conservation.
- Golden Lands:
A look at watersheds, working farms and ranches, community greenbelts, wildlife habitat, parks and trails.
A look at urban parks and the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area.
- Take Action:
Strategies for successfully protection of these vital lands.
Golden Lands, Golden Opportunity is a collaboration of Greenbelt Alliance and the Bay Area Open Space Council with the Association of Bay Area Governments. Over 100 Bay Area organizations contributed to this effort.
