Peninsula Open Space Trust protects and cares for open space, farms and parkland in and around Silicon Valley. Since 1977, POST has protected over 76,000 acres in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.
California State Parks provides for the health, inspiration and education of the people of California by helping to preserve the state’s extraordinary biological diversity, protecting its most valued natural and cultural resources, and creating opportunities for high-quality outdoor recreation.
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is an independent special district in the San Francisco Bay Area that has preserved a regional greenbelt system of over 63,000 acres of public land and manages 26 open space preserves.
It is important to reiterate that while this webinar series is a discussion of history here in the Bay Area, it is not a substitute for educating ourselves about current day Tribes and Indigenous organizations within our area, as well as supporting these causes. Please read below for additional resources that can help orient you to contemporary local Tribes and indigenous organizations. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and we encourage viewers to reach out to POST with additional resources to include.
