“We appreciate all the people who came out on our behalf to celebrate our fifty years of success. That support and enthusiasm carries us forward, as we begin the next era of our work to make the Bay Area a model for fair and sustainable living.”

Greenbelt Alliance’s big-picture approach promotes sustainable urban development — smart growth—as well as land conservation. This unique approach is more important than ever in a time of high gas prices and a changing climate.
