Bay Area League Day: A New Vision for Bay Area Open Space

This event has passed.

Open space is more than just a beautiful landscape or a place to hike. A new vision of the value of open space is emerging within the more than a million acres protected permanently from development in the Bay Area.

Topics to be Covered:

1) Extent of lands now permanently protected and areas still at risk, 2) Economic value of open lands: agricultural production, tourist visitation, public health, etc., 3) Role of natural areas in offsetting sea level rise, 4) Importance of connections and linkages between open spaces.
