Project Description: 
Residents of Silicon Valley are fortunate to have an abundance of parks and open spaces that provide us with a range of recreational, aesthetic, and cultural benefits and ecological functions. Local restoration sites encompass a range of threatened and ecologically important habitats across 2,000 acres of open space, spanning seven watersheds, two counties, and 10 cities—from San Jose to Redwood City and from the Santa Cruz mountains to San Francisco Bay. This project will engage 10,000 volunteers, half of which are youth, in building the resiliency of local lands, waters, and communities through native plant restoration, native plant nursery and seed banking, creek restoration, water conservation, water quality monitoring, trash removal, community engagement and education.
