Save Strawberry Canyo Charity Profile
Save Strawberry Canyon is a citizens' group that seeks to preserve and protect the watershed lands and cultural landscape of Strawberry Canyon. Save Strawberry Canyon formed out of the urgent need to take action in response to the threat of intrusive, inappropriate development on the Canyon lands.
The Strawberry Canyon watershed, opposite the Golden Gate, is a unique link to the East Bay Regional Park district lands and, by its streams and views, to the San Francisco Bay. The canyons, with their streamside vegetation, oak-bay woodlands, grasslands, and surrounding slopes, form a rich repository of wildlife adjacent to the dense urban populations of the UC Berkeley Campus and the cities of Berkeley and Oakland.
Save Strawberry Canyon seeks to inform the public about the impacts of proposed developments, to encourage location of such developments at more suitable sites, and to promote better public access to the beautiful watershed lands with their wildlife and scenic resources.
