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 approximately $390,000, in matching funds to thirty-nine land trusts, agencies and/or equestrian organizations. Bay Area Barns and Trails invites equestrians to submit funding requests for stewardship projects which will enhance equestrian trails, stables, pastures, and staging areas located in the San Francisco Bay Area counties.
