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 the largest drinking water aquifer recharge area in Santa Clara County (Laguna Seca) 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.
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.
