Featured Nonprofits

Together, these nonprofits implement a range of strategies - from bike lanes to protecting local biodiversity - focused on making our city more sustainable.

Friends of the Urban Forest

Friends of the Urban Forest

San Francisco

Unlike other major cities, San Francisco didn’t have many trees when it was first settled - it was mostly sand dunes at the time. Friends of the Urban Forest was founded in 1981 by concerned San Franciscans who believed that the City wasn’t investing sufficiently in the growth and care of the urban forest. Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) has planted over 60,000 trees, nearly half of San Francisco's street tree canopy. We’ve come a long way, but a lot of work remains to be done. San Francisco still has one of the smallest tree canopies of any major US city.

Literacy for Environmental Justice

Literacy for Environmental Justice

San Francisco

Since LEJ was founded in 1998, we have provided education, leadership, and park stewardship for youth and young adults in Southeast San Francisco. Bayview Hunters Point is home to a resilient community that has persevered through significant challenges. Historically, the region has faced disproportionate rates of industrial pollution, high rates of unemployment, and ongoing marginalization. Southeast San Francisco is home to more than two-thirds of San Francisco’s pollution sources and one third of the city’s hazardous waste sites. We believe that when neighborhoods and parks are cared for, it not only increases resident pride and stewardship, but raises the overall health of the community.

Nature in the City

San Francisco

Our mission is to inspire San Franciscans to discover local nature. Skyscrapers, coyotes, and sand dunes. Rapidly urbanizing San Francisco is a biodiversity hotspot. We’re dedicated to educating our community about urban wildlife and pioneering projects to encourage exploring and stewarding local habitats.
