Coyote Valley is one of the last remaining large, undeveloped valley floors that connects 1.13 million acres of core wildlife habitat across two mountain ranges: the Santa Cruz and Diablo ranges. Its conservation is a matter of considerable urgency.
Our work in Coyote Valley will safeguard wildlife passageways between the two mountain ranges and protect the region’s biodiversity, buffer adjacent and downstream communities against flood risk, preserve aquifer recharge for Santa Clara County’s drinking water and promote environmentally-friendly agricultural and recreational activities.
We are collaborating with public and private partners, including the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority, to protect and uplift the uniquely critical Coyote Valley landscape.
In the last 50 years, over $3.5 billion has been invested to conserve almost 500,000 acres of extraordinary land in this region, yet the fate of Coyote Valley has been uncertain for decades.
Now, momentum is building. Join hands with POST to create a beautiful, functional and healthy 21st-century greenbelt that will define the South Bay for generations to come.
POST’s work depends on donations — please consider a gift today. If you’d like your contribution to specifically support efforts in Coyote Valley, contact Anne Holmes at (650) 352-6297 or [email protected].
Along with our partners in the conservation community and the City of San Jose, POST is working to create a sustainable and resilient landscape linkage in Coyote Valley.
