  • helped conserve more than 500 properties containing more than 400,000 acres of wetlands, dunes, wildlife habitat, recreational lands, farmland, and scenic open space;
  • helped build several hundreds of miles of accessways and trails, including major portions of the California Coastal Trail, the Santa Ana River Parkway Trail, and the San Francisco Bay and Bay Area Ridge Trails;
  • assisted in the completion of more than 100 urban waterfront projects, enabling local communities to reclaim waterfront properties for recreational use and economic development;
