There's a new reason to go take a hike at the Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve this fall - the South Valley Meadow restoration is complete and ready to capture the coming rains!This project, funded in part by the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program, helps to protect our local water supply. These waters also replenish groundwater into a basin that supplies more than half of Santa Clara Valley’s drinking water. Restoration projects like this one help the valley to absorb rainfall while also reducing the risk of flooding further down Coyote Creek.
We've placed new interpretive signage around the project area to teach visitors more about the project, meadow/wetlands restoration, flood control, and climate change.
Visitors can now hike the Arrowhead Trail - First Leg to view the meadow from above. Check out our new interactive trail map to find out the location of the first overlook!
We encourage you to get out on the trails as we start this fall season and learn more about about the amazing benefits Coyote Valley offers.
