Join the Campaign to Save Diablo’s Wild Lands
Help Us Preserve Mount Diablo and its Foothills in Perpetuity
In 2012, Save Mount Diablo launched FOREVER WILD, our first capital campaign, with a target of raising $15 million by 2019.
With your support, we will permanently conserve, defend, and steward key vulnerable portions of the Diablo wild lands, transfer these properties to the public trust where appropriate, and stand ready to protect the threatened land that remains.
Thanks to the remarkable generosity of our campaign donors, as of 2017, we have raised $10.4 million towards our goal… but there is still a long road ahead of us. Save Mount Diablo needs your support today more than ever.
Now is the time to preserve the natural heritage of Mount Diablo for wildlife and for current and future generations.
My dream is that the whole of Mount Diablo, including its foothills, will remain open space… that the visual and natural integrity will be sustained.
