Barn OwlOver the years there have been stunning successes in conserving Orange County’s various natural heritage lands: Upper Newport Bay, parks along the Laguna Coast and Bolsa Chica to name a few protected coastal lands. Inland Orange County has seen land protected above Yorba Linda in Chino Hills State Park, in Casper’s Regional Park and in the Cleveland National Forest. These successes came about because of the cooperation and partnership of elected officials and their staffs, resource agencies, and dedicated citizens. There remain thousands of acres of unprotected lands in Orange County that could be protected if we had funding to acquire those lands.

Though the Green Vision Map effort began in 2000, FHBP didn't have staff to run a cohesive effort. When grant funding for staffing the Green Vision Project came in 2005, FHBP organized a management team.

From there Green Vision Project took flight. With a coalition of Orange County's conservation and community groups behind the Project, we've been hard at work ever since. The mission of the Orange County Green Vision Project is “to increase the funding for parks, water quality, and open spaces in Orange County.”
