Spent a great morning learning from the fine folks who represent @Changescale’s amazing member organizations, including local insta celeb @roving_ranger. And these talkative guys from @CalAcademy #Parrots = #BestTweets Ever #DiversityAndInclusion #EnvironmentalEducation #RainforestLife #BirdsOfInstagram #ButterfliesEverywhere #CanFishFridayBeAThing
The devastating wildfires in Sonoma, Napa, Solano, and neighboring counties have irrevocably affected the lives of so many people as well as the lands we work so hard to care for. In light of these tragic events, on 11/16 we’re hosting #OSCFires, a discussion between impacted fire ecologists, land managers, and community members. Confirmed speakers are: @auduboncanyonranch @sonomaopenspace @sonomacountyparks @sonomalandtrust @pepperwoodpreserve @napalandtrust @castateparks @baynaturemagazine. Stay tuned as we confirm additional speakers for this event.

Speakers whose lands have been affected will reflect upon what they’ve experienced, what they’ve learned, how they’ve responded, and their process to steward, rebuild, and restore their lives and lands. We are waiving our usual event fee to make this convening accessible for as many people as possible. Follow link in bio to BAOSC homepage to register. Please share this with anyone who’d like to attend.

The sky the past few days has been a reminder of the devastating wildfires that have deeply affected so many lives as well as the land so many work tirelessly to care for. A lot of people are wondering “how can I help?” Here are some resources on the most effective ways to contribute right now: www.bit.ly/2kNbvOp

Thank you for all you do. Our thoughts are with those affected by this tragic natural disaster.

A bolt of lightning from last night's storm as seen from the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve. Yet another scene from the wild weather we've been experiencing across the Bay Area and beyond.

"What if, before paradise was paved over for a parking lot, there was the Greenprint? What if the parking lot developer discovered that the land he/she was considering for the parking lot provided groundwater recharge, habitat for sensitive species, sequestered carbon, and hosted a recreational trail?" Last week, people from planning and infrastructure agencies, environmental and conservation organizations, the private sector and academia heard quotes like these at the Bay Area Greenprint Launch Event and workshopped the tool.
The Greenprint is a one-stop shop for conservation data in the Bay Area. It vacuums up all the data from across the region into one tool that reveals the costs and trade offs of developing natural and agricultural lands to users. And it helps people from many disciplines easily discover and understand the region's natural benefits and inherent values.

The #BAGreenprint is a collaboration of @nature_org @americanfarmlandtrust @bayareaopenspace @greenbeltalliance @greeninfonetwork along with sponsorship provided by @ca_coastal and funding from the S.D Bechtel Foundation.

Happy birthday #MeasureAA! 🎂🎉 A year ago today the #BayArea made history by voting for its first truly regional ballot measure. Measure AA passed in all 9 counties with more than 2/3 majority.

Thank you Bay Area for voting to protect and restore our region! It is a more #resilient place because of all that you do. #YayArea #OutdoorVoice (📷: @angelhertslet)

Every year on the first Saturday of June we celebrate #NationalTrailsDay! 🎉 It's a great opportunity to volunteer to improve a trail or simply visit one. What is your favorite #BayArea trail and how are you spending the day? #BayAreaOpenSpace #OutdoorVoice
