Greenbelt Alliance

Greenbelt Alliance educates, advocates, and collaborates to ensure the Bay Area’s lands and communities are resilient to a changing climate. Greenbelt Alliance has been serving this region for over 65 years and has protected its people, lands, and communities from threats like sprawl development to climate change. Over the last seven years alone, this organization has protected over 70,000 acres of open space lands from development and spurred the approval of 19,000 climate SMART—Sustainable, Mixed, Affordable, Resilient, Transit-Oriented–homes.

In Sonoma County in particular, Greenbelt Alliance is focused on building resilience to wildfire and extreme heat by working with community members and government agencies to implement nature-based solutions like wildfire buffers and green schoolyards that will protect communities and the County’s most vulnerable residents.
