The system comprises 121,397 acres in 73 parks, including over 1,250 miles of trails. We acquire, manage, and preserve natural and cultural resources for all to enjoy now and into the future. Our parks are ideal for healthful recreation and environmental education. We invite you to enjoy hiking, biking, picnicking, horseback riding, camping, fishing, boating, golfing, and nature study in our parks.

Save Mount Diablo:   Save Mount Diablo (SMD) is a nationally accredited land trust and conservation organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area.Save Mount Diablo has been preserving lands on and around Mount Diablo and educating the public to the mountain’s natural values since 1971. We are biologists, conservationists, hikers, bikers, equestrians, bird watchers, and people who just love to look at the mountain.

Center for Natural Lands Management - Windemere Ranch Preserve:  The Preserve consists of preserved, created and restored features, including stock ponds, grassland, riparian woodland and seasonal wetlands.  The Preserve was established to provide habitat for the Federally Endangered San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica), Federally Threatened California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) and the Federally Threatened California red-legged frog (Rana aurora).  In addition, burrowing owl, American badger, golden eagle, northern harrier, prairie falcon, loggerhead shrike, and tri-colored blackbird are known to inhabit the preserve.The goal for the Windemere Ranch Preserve is to protect the habitats and the species that depend upon the Preserve for survival.  They use a variety of strategies to accomplish our goals, which include cattle grazing in an effort to maintain short grassland habitats essential for the California red-legged frog and California tiger salamander.
