REGIONAL PARKS FOUNDATION

Mission

The Regional Parks Foundation supports the East Bay Regional Park District through fundraising to provide universal access, environmental stewardship, educational and recreational programs and the acquisition of parklands.

At the Regional Parks Foundation we believe connections with nature are critical for leading a healthy, balanced life. Every day, we provide resources to ensure underserved populations have equal access to nature through the East Bay Regional Park District's parks, trails, programs and services. When we do, lives are changed, and we inspire the next generation of environmental stewards to value and protect open space and the environment.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Campership

While retaining flexibility to serve the East Bay Regional Park District as needed, the Foundation annually raises funds to provide support for a group of core program initiatives. One of the core programs is Campershialso known as "Camperships," offer a one-of-a-kind experience in the Regional Parks to at-risk and disabled youth who otherwise would not be able to attend camp during the summer or participate in outdoor environmental education during the academic school year.

The goal of the overall Campership Program is to provide an equal opportunity for our East Bay residents to participate in Park District programs and activities so that no one is turned away due to limited financial resources.

Population(s) Served

While retaining flexibility to serve the East Bay Regional Park District as needed, the Foundation annually raises funds to provide support for a group of core program initiatives. One of the core programs is Environmental Restoration and Habitat Enhancement.

Black Rail Habitat Enhancement - restoring nesting habitat for the State threatened California Black Rail
Breeding Bird Biologist - restoration and research projects to conserve and manage riparian woodland and wetland-dependent nesting birds
Burrowing Owl Buddies - conservation projects that build new "owl outposts" in which these "flying mouse traps" raise their young
Covey Conservationist - habitat enhancement projects to preserve and protect our state bird, the California Quail
Forest of the Future - helping acorn eating wildlife through the planting and tending of oak woodlands
Habitat Helpers - landscape ecology efforts to remove "green aliens" (non-native plants) and restore native, wildlife friendly plants
It's Your Tern - managing the nesting habitat for the endangered California Least Tern
Lizard Legionnaire - reptile research and grassland management efforts to conserve our region's web of life
