Take this survey and pass it on

March 21, 2016


We want to hear from you with a super quick survey. But first…

Did you know that parks in San Francisco provide us with nearly $50 million in health savings every year?

Did you know that parks in Santa Clara generate about $1.9 to $4 billion annually in natural benefits such as clean air, water supply, and reduced fire and flood risk. In the case of the Coyote Valley Preserve just south of San Jose, every $1 invested in maintaining the park creates $3 in natural benefits to ensure a healthier Bay Area for all.

That’s $1 invested yields $3 in benefits!

What do you value about the parks, open spaces, and farmlands that you love? We want to hear from you, your friends and colleagues, and as many people as we can reach. This survey will seriously take 5 seconds to complete.
