Parks and Open Space

Parks — from our great wild national parks to little slivers of green in the city — are essential for both wildlife and for human welfare. The Bay Chapter campaigns to secure funding for the acquisition, improvement, and maintenance of our public lands; and to make sure that our public lands are used in ways consistent with our environmental principles.

Get Outdoors 

Explore the incredible parks and public lands our region and state have to offer! The Bay Chapter sponsors dozens of outings every month. Many of our outings take you to places the Bay Chapter played a role in protecting over our 90-plus-year history. Visit our Activities Calendar to explore our outings schedule.

Get Involved

To help out on campaigns to protect, grow, and maintain our area's parklands, fill out the form on our Volunteer page and we'll be in touch with ways you can make a difference. 

We're also looking for volunteer outings leaders. If you want to meet new people and lead trips for the Bay Chapter, learn more here.
