Going to the Public for Conservation

Learning about land and water funding around the Bay Area

A significant source of funding for land conservation in the Bay Area is voter approved measures. Look closely at any county and its open spaces and you’ll discover a funding measure that played a major role in the protection of the land. The region faces decreased funding for conservation overall and plans for more bonds and funding measures are in the works around the Bay Area. At our Almost Spring Gathering we will hear presentations about:

Rosemary Cameron, who has worked on several funding measures, will moderate the panel. Between each presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and discuss each measure.

The Almost Spring Gathering will take place on March 21 from 10am-1pm at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. The program will run from 10am-12pm and a free and organic lunch will be served from 12pm-1pm.

If you are unable to attend, please let us know ASAP. There is a waitlist for this event.
