About Us

Committee for Green Foothills is local, vocal, and effective. We protect the open space, farmland, and natural resources of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties through advocacy, education, and grassroots action. Founded in 1962 by citizens who wanted to protect peninsula hillsides from sprawl, today Committee for Green Foothills serves as the local champion for the coast, forests, bay, farmland, creeks, hillsides, and parks. Take a look at our 2016 annual report and our vision for the next 50 years.

Our culture: Our team will tell you that Committee for Green Foothills is a great place to work. We put an emphasis on work/life balance and camaraderie. We have several sayings including, “wonderful people!” “it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” and “if it’s not fun, it won’t get done.”
