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

And for our #1000th insta photo, drumroll please, we present our small but mighty team, who took to the trails of the Terra Linda - Sleep Hollow Open Space Reserve to think big thoughts about where we are and where we're headed over the next year, while taking in some gorgeous views of the Bay Area #HomeSweetHome #TerraLinda #SleepyHollow #OpenSpaceCouncil #OutdoorVoice #TeamOSC
#Lupine and other native #wildflowers are out in full force right now. Which means the #endangered Mission Blue butterfly and its friends are hanging out nearby. Happy Spring!

Longer days mean there's more opportunity to #getoutside and enjoy the light, just like some of our ☀️loving friends are doing #DaylightSavings #AlmostSpring #IsLizardingAVerb?
There is reason for hope, and there are ways you can make a difference. Hop over to our Facebook page to watch and share a story about the Kashia Band of Pomo Indians and the creation of the Kashia Coastal Reserve. Thanks to the @BayAreaOpenSpace and @PlusmSF for helping to tell this story. #wearehereandnow #indigeneous #nativecalifornia #landconservation #california #hope #kashia
