Bringing the Benefits of Nature to All

People need access to nature for recreation and for their physical and mental health. Our parks, trails and natural areas play a key role in our quality of life and attract visitors from near and far. POST works to protect lands that create a more connected network of regional trails and open spaces that all can enjoy. Everyone deserves to experience the benefits of nature, and providing equitable access is a priority for us. Additionally, in collaboration with our public agency partners, we support opportunities to develop and improve public access amenities on those protected lands.
