About Fairview Open Space
El Cerrito Hillside Organization or ECHO is a community group dedicated to preserving the largest remaining parcel of unprotected open space in the El Cerrito hills, known as Fairview Open Space. Our goal is to preserve this open space for the benefit of the creatures that inhabit it and the residents of our Bay Area community.
Fairview Open Space is a 14.88 acre site of unprotected open space adjoining the northern border of El Cerrito's Hillside Natural Area. It offers panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and supports a wide variety of native wildlife and plants with natural springs and two local creeks.
