Parks and open space are known to provide benefits to their surrounding communities through clean air, clean water, sanctuary for relaxation, exercise and connection with nature. The BHC supports projects that enhance these community health benefits.
The BHC’s main role in the Parklands in funding projects that contribute to its mission. This is achieved through our local assistance grant programs (Prop 1, Prop 40, and Prop 84). Our projects include acquisition of future parkland, improvement of habitat, clean water, public access, and research.
“In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.” (Baba Dioum, 1968). That is why a big part of the BHC’s focus is on outdoor education to train the next generation of open space stewards.
