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.
In late 2019, after over 40 years of discussion about the potential for a trail from the San Francisco Bay to the ocean, 11 organizations and agencies signed a letter of intent formalizing plans to turn this vision into reality.
Read about the proposed route, and the project’s aim to bring health and wellness opportunities to communities across the region.
POST’s work has been instrumental in protecting land for public use. Here are a few stand-out projects that illustrate our efforts to provide opportunities for everyone to experience beautiful natural spaces nearby.
