Mission Statement

Acterra brings people together to create local solutions for a healthy planet.


Acterra is an environmental non-profit serving the Silicon Valley. We provide people with tangible, hands-on activities they can do to improve the environment. All of our work is solution-oriented. We offer several thousand volunteer opportunities each year for adults and youth. Because people get excited by different things, we offer a broad range of programs, from habitat restoration to carbon reduction and more. As importantly, we teach people how to become effective environmental change agents in their communities, neighborhoods, workplaces and schools.

Currently our programs include: Stewardship program, Business Environmental Awards, Green@Home, and the Environmental Library and Resource Center.
