Urban greening investments provide many benefits to a neighborhood such as better air quality, water quality, improved health, cooling in the summers, reduced flooding, habitat for birds and pollinators such as butterflies and bees and help absorb greenhouse gases. However, urban greening can also increase property values and may spur gentrification and displacement. Collaborating with the community on urban greening projects ensures the investment will serve both new and existing residents, and can be complemented with anti-displacement policies. {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.displacement_typos_percent|negligible }} % of your area includes census tracts that are experiencing or are at risk of gentrification and displacement.

Map Layers

The Greenprint is designed as a regional, screening-level evaluation tool. Sources for more accurate natural resource data may exist in your area of interest. Please consult with the appropriate agencies and organizations. Furthermore, site visits and biological surveys are essential for parcels of all sizes when considering conservation actions.

When reporting areas under 100 acres, some metrics, policies, and other report items may be omitted due of the resolution of the source data.

Reports generated with this tool are using Greenprint fishnet version 9. Existing downloaded reports might have used a different version. Read more about our data versions.

How will climate change impact prioritized habitats?

Climate Risk

It is assumed that habitats prioritized for conservation action will persist in those locations into the future. If climate change results in projected climate outside of the range of suitable climate for the vegetation types in that area, then the species and habitats in those prioritized lands may be more vulnerable to climate change. In your area, {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.prinathab_marginal_percent|negligible }}% of prioritized habitats have vegetation types likely to be at the margins of suitable climate.

Resilience

Some species and vegetation in prioritized landscapes are likely to persist despite climate change either because projected changes are still within the range of suitable climate for those vegetation types or because local microclimate options that make those vegetation types more resilient to potential climate stress. In this area, {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.prinathab_ok_percent|negligible }}% of prioritized habitats have vegetation types that are likely to have suitable climate in the future. This area is {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.arearesilience_value }} resilience for the Bay Area.

Catastrophic Fire Risk to Prioritized Habitats

Uncharacteristically severe fire can limit an ecosystem's ability to recover and can cause rapid changes to habitat and the wildlife it supports. In your area, {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.prinathab_firesev_percent|negligible }}% of prioritized habitats are in high and very high fire severity zones.

How will climate change impact connectivity?

Climate Risk

Climate change may cause habitats to be unsuitable for plants and animals. Those that cannot adapt to quickly changing conditions may have to move to find new habitat.

Resilience

Maintaining and enhancing habitat connectivity will make plants and animals better track change in suitable climate. {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.climate_migration_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} acres of land are within a climate migration route connecting current climate conditions to similar climates in the future.

How will climate change impact species that might require mitigation?

Climate Risk

Drought may reduce water availability causing changes to habitat and cover and exposing species to stressful conditions.

Resilience

Under drought conditions, Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems can provide important refuge for rare and endangered species, especially in times of drought, when other habitat options are increasingly stressed by reduced water availability. Your area has {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.groundwaterdependentecosystems_value.toLocaleString() }} acres of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems.

Risk from Sea-Level Rise

Sea level rise may inundate important coastal habitat. {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.coastalhabitatvulnerable_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} acres of coastal habitat is vulnerable to sea-level rise, meaning they do not have enough room to migrate inland in response. Restoration and management of these habitats or adapting the built environment can enhance their resilience. These areas may still play an important role in protecting communities from the impacts of sea-level rise.

Resilience

Estuarine wetlands will need room to migrate inland as sea levels rise. Estuarine migration space is undeveloped uplands that are projected to become tidal with sea level rise. Migration space will need to be conserved, restored, and/or managed for tidal marshes and other bay habitats to move inland as sea level rises. These habitat types, and particularly marshes, provide multiple benefits to people, including enhancing shoreline resilience, improving water quality, and sequestering carbon. Up to {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.coastalhab_migrationspace_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} acres in this area could be potential future habitat for coastal marsh migration.

How will climate change impact food production?

Climate Risk

A warmer and/or drier climate may require additional irrigation to maintain the same crop in the same location or sustain the same grazing intensity. In your area, {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.morewater_hotdry_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.morewater_hotdry_unit }} of additional irrigation will be needed to offset climate change under the "Hotter, Drier" scenario and {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.morewater_warmwet_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.morewater_warmwet_unit }} of additional irrigation will be needed under the "Warmer, Wetter" scenario.

Resilience

Agricultural practices such as cover cropping, using soil amendments, and planting hedgerows can sequester CO2 and mitigate climate change while also providing habitat and improving crop yield, making local food production more resilient to the impacts of climate change. Decentralized stormwater capture on farms can help replenish aquifers. Additionally, planting urban farms can contribute to a resilient food system, improve community access to healthy foods, and reduce the effect of urban heat islands.

How will climate change impact water supply?

Climate Risk

With potential decreases in water supply and increases in water demand as the region becomes hotter and drier, and droughts become more frequent, groundwater basins will be increasingly stressed. Water sources that extend beyond the Bay Area may also be stressed by climate change. Find out more about where your drinking water comes from in the report Where Does California's Water Come From?

Resilience

Maintaining the infiltration potential of areas with soil and geologic conditions that are most suitable for direct aquifer recharge will become increasingly important in a changing climate. {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.hirechargevulnerable_value.toLocaleString()|negligible }} {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.hirechargevulnerable_unit }} of your area has soil or geologic conditions that are more likely to allow recharge at substantially higher rates.

Overview

Climate change is already threatening the Bay Area’s natural and human communities.

  • Residents and outdoor workers are experiencing more high heat events.
  • Sea level rise, flooding, and catastrophic fire threaten infrastructure and communities.
  • Drought threatens the Bay Area’s rich agricultural lands and water supply.
  • Plants and animals are increasingly stressed by changing conditions.

Nature-based solutions can mitigate climate change and can make the Bay Area’s communities, infrastructure, economy, plants, and animals more resilient to impacts from climate change.

For each section below, we present key risks and associated nature-based solutions that improve resilience.

Heat-trapping gasses, especially carbon dioxide, released into our atmosphere are the leading cause of climate change. In addition to energy use, vehicle miles traveled and other emission sources from the built environment, disturbance of vegetation and soils release carbon into the atmosphere.

Annual average extreme heat days (over 85°F) in the Bay Area may increase by 15 to 40 more days per year by 2050, and potentially 90 more days per year by 2100.

Nature-based Solution

Healthy habitats are one of our only tools to help fight climate change by capturing and storing carbon both in the trunks and stems of vegetation and belowground in the soil.

This area stores {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_aboveground_value.toLocaleString() }} metric tons of CO2 equivalent in vegetation, soils, and street trees. Avoiding disturbance in this area would have greenhouse gas emissions reduction benefits equivalent to getting at least {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_ghgequiv_cars.toLocaleString() }} passenger vehicles driven for one year off of the road, or benefits equivalent to planting at least {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_ghgequiv_trees.toLocaleString() }} seedlings and letting them grow for 10 years.

Overview

The environment around where we live, work, learn, and play are fundamental determinants of our health and well-being. Exposure to hazards, proximity to public resources, and access to stable housing are critical factors that influence our quality of life, with marginalized communities under greater stress from these environmental threats. Environmental justice demands that all people have the right to equal environmental protection under the law, and the right to live, work, learn, and play in communities that are safe, healthy, and free of life-threatening conditions.

The Bay Area Greenprint provides data that must be balanced with lived experiences and perspectives. When working locally, data will not capture the many local nuances and must be balanced with public input and lived experiences. For additional context, the Bay Area Equity Atlas supports land use planning by providing data and analysis that help inform policies and decisions aimed at promoting equity, addressing disparities, and creating more inclusive and sustainable land use strategies in the region.

Disparities in Access

Public resources that provide access to urban and open space areas for exercise and relaxation are vital for the health and well-being of communities. Neighborhoods lacking public amenities such as parks, bike paths, and trails can be prioritized for improvement through community engagement to understand and respond to the needs of the community.

Overview

In October 2020, Governor Newsom signed Executive Order N-82-20 commiting to protect 30% of California’s lands and coastal waters by 2030, making California the first state to join the international 30x30 movement. This executive order aims to advance biodiversity conservation and the role of natural and working lands in enhancing the health, equity, and resiliency of California’s communities.

3 Key Objectives for 30x30 in California

1. Protect and restore California’s unique biodiversity

2. Expand equitable access to nature and its benefits

3. Conserve places that help California achieve carbon neutrality and/or build climate resilience

The California Biodiversity Council: Opportunities to Advance 30x30 application highlights available state and federal programs that could be a resource for projects that advance California’s 30x30 Key Objectives.

The Bay Area Greenprint and 30x30

The Pathways to 30x30 California: Accelerating Conservation of California’s Nature document promotes Accelerating Regionally Led Conservation as a strategic action toward advancing 30x30. The Bay Area Greenprint is a regionally-led planning and reporting tool that serves data and analyses to reveal the values and benefits of natural and working lands to people and nature. The following report uses Bay Area Greenprint data and metrics to highlight how any area of interest may advance California’s 30x30 Key Objectives.

Urban greening investments provide many benefits to a neighborhood such as better air quality, water quality, improved health, cooling in the summers, reduced flooding, habitat for birds and pollinators such as butterflies and bees and help absorb greenhouse gases. However, urban greening can also increase property values and may spur gentrification and displacement. Collaborating with the community on urban greening projects ensures the investment will serve both new and existing residents, and can be complemented with anti-displacement policies.

3. Mitigate and Build Resilience to Climate Change

Nature-based solutions can mitigate climate change and can make the Bay Area’s communities, infrastructure, economy, plants, and animals more resilient to impacts from climate change.

Carbon Storage
Risk

Heat-trapping gasses, especially carbon dioxide, released into our atmosphere are the leading cause of climate change. In addition to energy use, vehicle miles traveled and other emission sources from the built environment, disturbance of vegetation and soils release carbon into the atmosphere.

Annual average extreme heat days (over 85°F) in the Bay Area may increase by 15 to 40 more days per year by 2050, and potentially 90 more days per year by 2100.

Nature-based Solution

Healthy habitats are one of our only tools to help fight climate change by capturing and storing carbon both in the trunks and stems of vegetation and belowground in the soil.

This area stores {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_aboveground_value.toLocaleString() }} metric tons of CO2 equivalent in vegetation, soils, and street trees. Avoiding disturbance in this area would have greenhouse gas emissions reduction benefits equivalent to getting at least {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_ghgequiv_cars.toLocaleString() }} passenger vehicles driven for one year off of the road, or benefits equivalent to planting at least {{ analyticaldata.features[0].properties.carbon_ghgequiv_trees.toLocaleString() }} seedlings and letting them grow for 10 years.
