Greenspace is committed to ensuring the environmental and cultural well-being of San Luis Obispo’s beautiful North Coast, for residents and visitors and for future generations. We have three primary tasks: preservation, education and advocacy.
We acquire open space, forest, riparian and agricultural land by purchases or gifts and we restore and protect these preserves and pocket parks. We provide education regarding the North Coast’s environmental resources, history and challenges through a monthly newsletter, our annual Speakers Series, guided walks, a quarterly newspaper column, forest and creek workshops and special events. We also advocate publicly for the health of our local lands and protection of the plant and wildlife habitats they provide.
