      *Dear Friend of Open Space,*

      * *

      Join Greenbelt Alliance <http://www.greenbelt.org/> and Committee for Green
      Foothills <http://www.greenfoothills.org/> for an investigative series as we
      explore issues facing South Santa Clara County and plan for a future where
      farms, natural areas, and attractive towns thrive side by side.

      * *

      *Why this is Important:*

      South Santa Clara County is faced with on-going pressure to develop its
      valuable open spaces and farmlands which makes the preservation of these
      lands for future generations increasingly more difficult. Committee for
      Green Foothills and Greenbelt Alliance present a series of talks and tours
      to illustrate this struggle and invite you to share your ideas and
      solutions.
