30 x 30 Power In Nature: Protecting California Together

power in nature: 30 x 30 CA

About us

Power in Nature is a community-driven initiative to protect 30% of California’s lands and coastal waters by 2030.

Opportunity of a lifetime

California’s 30×30 goal is our chance to protect biodiversity, address climate change, and promote equity for future generations. Power In Nature consists of community groups, conservation organizations, land trusts, and Tribal organizations from across California — all dedicated to realizing the 30×30 vision for the state.

A multifaceted approach

Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-82-20 initiated California’s 30×30 effort as part of a global effort to address the intertwined climate and extinction crises. California’s approach uniquely emphasizes equity, biodiversity, and climate action.

Pathways to 30x30

California’s visionary plan to reach 30×30 is considered one of the best and most comprehensive in the world.

tribal acknowledgment

Together, we can ensure 30×30 addresses the legacies of the violent displacement of Tribes from their traditional homelands. California must create a process to return lands—and control of those lands—to Indigenous communities, and must financially support Tribes for their consultation on and stewardship of 30×30 protections.

Power In Nature Through Equity

#30x30CA is an opportunity to address legacies of discriminatory land use policies, pollution burdens, and other environmental injustices that have excluded low-income households, Tribes, and communities of color from access to nature in their communities, and from decision-making around public resources. We advocate for a comprehensive 30×30 plan that fosters equity and helps address historic and systemic environmental injustice in California.
