The Bay Area Greenprint brings together a wide range of data to help you discover and highlight the overlapping benefits from the non-built environment including:

Biodiversity, Habitat, Agriculture, Water, Carbon, and Recreation.

It provides planners, conservation practitioners, and community members with a way to sort through the mountains of information available and gives a more complete understanding of the costs and benefits of decisions made around open space, agricultural lands, and development throughout the Bay Area. The Bay Area Greenprint is a powerful tool for advocates and planners, helping to define strategies and priorities. And in support of the open and democratic exchange of ideas, it is available for free.
