Our next-door neighbors in downtown Palo Alto, the Sereno Group donates one percent of their commissions to a good cause. We're honored to be the recipients of a $10,000 donation thanks to their latest 1% for Good campaign. Their generous donation will sponsor one of our 2016 Wallace Stegner Lectures. Thank you, Sereno Group!

Hats off to Santa Clara County residents for reducing their water use by 35% in June (and beating their conservation goal)! It's inspiring to see everyone banding together to conserve our precious natural resources. http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_28529420/california-drought-santa-clara-county-residents-cut-water
New numbers from the Santa Clara Valley Water District show that Silicon Valley residents cut water use by 35 percent this June compared with June 2013, exceeding the district's 30 percent goal for the second month in a row.

Fun to see POST-protected Pigeon Point as a Bay Area "glamping" destination! Have you ever stayed at the hostel there? http://www.sfgate.com/aboutsfgate/article/Best-Bay-Area-glamping-spots-Where-to-camp-6395532.php#photo-4606205

Happy 15th Anniversary, Whaler’s Cove! In 2000, POST saved this small, but stunning, slice on the Coastside from being turned into a motel. We're pleased to say it's now part of the Pigeon Point Light Station Historic State Park. #TBT

Who wouldn't want to join this merry olde team? POST is looking for an Individual Giving Officer, Senior Manager of Communications, Senior Major Gifts Officer, and Conservation Project Manager, and we'd love you to apply!
