This event is part of POST’s community event series, which is open to the general public as well as POST donors. We hope you’ll join us! We also curate a separate series of private events for our donors. Learn how you can support POST here: openspacetrust.org/support-post
Peninsula Open Space Trust protects and cares for open space, farms and parkland in and around Silicon Valley. Since 1977, POST has protected over 76,000 acres in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.
California State Parks provides for the health, inspiration and education of the people of California by helping to preserve the state’s extraordinary biological diversity, protecting its most valued natural and cultural resources, and creating opportunities for high-quality outdoor recreation.
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is an independent special district in the San Francisco Bay Area that has preserved a regional greenbelt system of over 63,000 acres of public land and manages 26 open space preserves.
It is important to reiterate that while this webinar series is a discussion of history here in the Bay Area, it is not a substitute for educating ourselves about current day Tribes and Indigenous organizations within our area, as well as supporting these causes. While there is a great diversity of Indigenous communities in the Bay Area, we want to acknowledge the Amah Mutsun and Muwekma Tribal Bands, as well as several others, who are most centrally located within our focus area of the Peninsula and the South Bay. Please read below for additional resources. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and we encourage participants to share additional resources in the discussion section of our live events.
