SPUR Lunchtime Forum: The future of open space
"The Bay Area leads the nation in open space preservation near its urban core. But the region sits next to the country’s most threatened farmland and the urban sprawl of the San Joaquin Valley. Is the future of the open space movement in the Bay Area to look beyond the nine counties to address watershed and farmland preservation in the Delta and Central Valley, or is it to shift to new strategies that make our current preserved land more accessible? Join the discussion with two of the leading open space activists in the region – Jeremy Madsen, executive director of Greenbelt Alliance, and John Cain, director of restoration programs at the Natural Heritage Institute."
