Bay Area Barns and Trails (BABT) assists landowners and land managers with preservation and maintenance of publicly accessible barns, stables, pastures, staging areas, horse camps, and trails throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma Counties.
Bay Area Barns and Trails was incorporated as a California non-profit corporation in November 1999. Since 2000 BABT has helped conservation minded equestrians preserve and restore natural areas and wildlife habitat, maintain parks and public open space, equestrian facilities, trails and trailheads by awarding nearly $308,000 in matching funds to thirty-nine land trusts, agencies and/or equestrian organizations.
Bay Area Barns and Trails (BABT) is pleased to announce that after review and research, the Board of Directors selected 4 projects from 3 counties for grant awards totaling $15,000.
