Since 1958, Greenbelt Alliance has been working to protect the Bay Area's 3.6 million acres of natural and agricultural lands from Sonoma to the South Bay. Their holistic approach has helped to protect the viability of the Bay Area's beautiful landscapes, farmlands, and neighborhoods. Geenbelt’s mission started with the pioneering vision of founder Dorothy Erskine who mobilized friends and neighbors to protect places like the Marin Headlands from sprawl development. They have helped to protect 2.1 million acres with policy to date, and they are just getting started.
One of the things people including myself love about the Bay Area is the nearby open space for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife, rejuvenation, beauty and much more. But this just didn’t happen by accident. Individuals and organizations like Greenbelt Alliance have fought hard for the last 50 years to save these places from development. It is an ongoing need.
I am honored to serve on the host committee for Savor The Greenbelt. Come and celebrate Greenbelt Alliance’s pioneering work to preserve our spectacular landscapes, local farms, and the sustainable future of our cities and towns. We hope to see you at the party!
