Mobile Workshop: A tale of two valleys

Tour two unique San Jose environs and learn how the preservation of open space and agricultural lands and the revitalization of the downtown go hand in hand in building climate and economic resilience. Visit scenic Coyote Valley, a 7,400‐acre area located just south of San Jose, rich in natural and working lands. Once planned to be developed into another urban sprawl mini‐city, the land is now the focus of intense preservation efforts. We will visit the Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve and learn how preservation of Coyote Valley is a strategy to optimize agricultural operations on the urban edge, improve wildlife resilience and positively impact water resources.
