The value provided by natural capital and the connection between healthy lands, communities and economies — all of which Santa Clara County is rich in — is key to the sustainability of our region in the 21st century. Join regional conservation leaders to discuss the valuation of ecosystem services and how it might reshape planning and conservation investment.
