Ensuring Landscape Resilience with Region-Wide Benefits

Coyote Valley is one of the last remaining large, undeveloped valley floors that connects 1.13 million acres of core wildlife habitat across two mountain ranges: the Santa Cruz and Diablo ranges. Its conservation is a matter of considerable urgency.

Our work in Coyote Valley will safeguard wildlife passageways between the two mountain ranges and protect the region’s biodiversity, buffer adjacent and downstream communities against flood risk, preserve the largest drinking water aquifer recharge area in Santa Clara County (Laguna Seca) and promote environmentally-friendly agricultural and recreational activities.

We are collaborating with public and private partners, including the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority, to protect and uplift the uniquely critical Coyote Valley landscape.

Coyote Valley Needs Everyone’s Support

In the last 50 years, over $3.5 billion has been invested to conserve almost 500,000 acres of extraordinary land in this region, yet the fate of Coyote Valley has been uncertain for decades.

Now is the time to join hands with POST to create a beautiful, functional, smart and effective 21st-century greenbelt that will define the South Bay for generations to come.
