The Trust for Public Land Green Schoolyards Program (Bay Area)

The Trust for Public Land is a national nonprofit organization that conserves land and creates parks for people. The Trust for Public Land's Bay Area Team is starting a Green Schoolyards Program in partnership with Oakland Unified School District and several community-based organizations that focus on the multiple benefits that green schoolyards bring to education and the environment. We aim to convert asphalt schoolyards to green schoolyards with nature-based outdoor education and play areas, vegetable gardening spaces, shade trees, native plant landscaping, and stormwater infrastructure.
