Committee for Green Foothills

No one has rolling green hills quite like California has rolling green hills. These grassy knolls have even achieved pop culture status as the iconic screensaver of Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system. That’s a pretty impressive achievement for a landscape feature. So it’s no surprise that their stunning original beauty has impassioned folks to make sure they are around for a long, long time.

The Committee for Green Foothills is one of the organizations leading the charge, throwing in the protection of local farmlands, natural resources and all open spaces in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties for good measure. A California nonprofit corporation, the Committee rallies around protective legislation while working to educate and inspire the public. The goal: to protect the Bay Area’s natural landscape legacy.
