"Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” - Gary Snyder

Who We are

The Metropolitan Greenspace Alliance (MGA) is a national network of urban conservation coalitions working to promote a collaborative approach of knowledge sharing and best practices across major metropolitan areas. The MGA currently comprises the Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Portland and San Francisco areas. Recently, Denver, Kansas City, Nashville, Seattle, St. Louis, and Baltimore have begun developing coalitions and working with the MGA. Together, MGA members include more than 550 private, nonprofit, and public organizations from seven U.S. metropolitan regions, which together are home to more than 30 million people.
