WHO WE ARE

A volunteer group of concerned residents who care about our Lincoln open space and environmental issues.

MISSION

To identify, protect, preserve and restore open space, wetlands, and woodlands in the Lincoln area to provide permanent wildlife corridors and native plant habitats for the benefit of the entire community.

HISTORY

Began in 2002 as a neighborhood group working to protect and enhance the Markham Ravine Park and open space areas along the ravine. Supported by the Mayor, city staff, and members of the City Council the group expanded to encompass the Auburn Ravine open space area.  In 2008 the name changed officially to the "Lincoln Open Space Committee" and broadened its scope further to serve the entire city as well as the unincorporated areas surrounding Lincoln.

MEETINGS

Second Wednesday quarterly in the Twelve Bridges Library, 7 P.M. to approximately 8:30 P.M.  We frequently have speakers come in to discuss open space issues and activities of other environmental and conservation groups.  All residents are invited to attend, ask questions, and get involved.
