The Committee for Green Foothills (CGF) is a local-level nonprofit environmental organization working to protect open space and habitat in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.
For decades, CGF has successfully opposed development of the foothills, forests, and coasts of the San Francisco Peninsula that are inconsistent with its standards and considered "inappropriate" by the organization.
CGF is funded primarily by individual private donations. The organization aims to protect: creeks, coasts, wetlands, open space, farmlands, and natural resources of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties through advocacy, education and grassroots action.
