There’s power in nature across California.
Explore opportunities to protect our treasured natural places.
#PowerInNature highlights California’s diverse array of landscapes and the communities, advocates, and Tribes protecting their cultures. Below, we share incredible California places and people that evoke the spirit of 30x30.
Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth, from plants and animals to the types of ecosystems that keep our planet healthy. California is a “biodiversity hotspot” because it is home to thousands of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth.
Climate Resilience is the ability for a place to adapt to the impacts of climate change. In California, protecting lands and waters is especially important to help plant and animal life recover from droughts or higher than normal temperatures, and to prevent future climate impacts like wildfires.
Access to nature helps communities feel and be their best, but not every Californian has access to nature and its benefits. Protecting an array of natural places in diverse locales helps create more access to nature for all Californians—especially for historically marginalized communities and communities of color.
