Parks. Trails. Farmlands.

The Bay Area Open Space Council is a network of 65 nonprofits and public agencies that serve tens of millions of people each year; maintain thousands of miles of trails; produce delicious food; and steward over 1 million acres of publicly accessible parks.

At the 2017 Open Space Conference, speakers inspired and shared about what needs to be done to protect the beautiful, natural places we love. In honor of the hard work and dedication that so many organizations have put forth to this end, we produced a film profiling accomplishments from around the greater Bay Area that happened in 2016-2017. This is just a sampling of the many successes over the past year within the region.
