The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority is dedicated to protecting and preserving the natural beauty of the Coyote Valley in San Jose, California. This stunning region, nestled between the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Diablo Range, offers a unique combination of floodplains, wildlife connectivity, agriculture, and recreational opportunities. The Authority's top priority is to protect Coyote Valley, as it serves as a vital landscape linkage for over one million acres of core habitat.
By safeguarding this area, they create a sustainable environment for species to thrive and adapt to climate change. Through a groundbreaking partnership with the Peninsula Open Space Trust and the City of San Jose, the Authority has already conserved 1,000 acres in the North Coyote Valley. This not only helps connect wildlife habitats but also provides opportunities to restore floodplains and improve water quality.
In addition, they are working to conserve the Mid-Coyote Valley, home to critical habitats and fertile farmland. Stewardship is a key aspect of the Authority's mission, and they recognize the historical ethic of stewardship practiced by Indigenous Peoples in the region. They also emphasize the importance of investing in natural infrastructure, which can benefit urban communities in various ways, such as flood risk reduction and clean water supply.
As they plan for the future of Coyote Valley, the Authority invites the community to get involved. They are leading a public planning process to define the future of the area and restore its lands. Visitors can participate in docent-led events, volunteer to help manage and restore open spaces, and provide input through the Master Plan interest list.
By joining hands with the community, the Authority aims to create a vibrant and sustainable future for Coyote Valley
