Canopy works to mobilize communities to grow and care for resilient urban forests. Together volunteers planted trees that combat climate change and its effects.
Grassroots Ecology became an independent organization in 2016 after many years as the Land Stewardship Program of Acterra. The team engages people in environmental restoration, community science, and educational programs offered at outdoor spaces throughout Silicon Valley, from the foothills to the bay. Volunteers helped with planting, weeding, creek monitoring, or installing rain gardens and rain barrels.
Environmental Volunteers trains its volunteers to lead hands-on science and nature programs in schools, community organizations, and at the EcoCenter in the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve.
