Audrey Rust tells of POST's vision for an open coast

Winner of Athena Award for 2010 outlines a sweeping vision for future open space acquisition

There's more to open space than the vision of open foothills and Skyline Ridge, Audrey Rust told attendees at the Athena Award luncheon Wednesday.

A bigger vision is to see coastside open space stretching many miles south to the Pajaro River, she said in her acceptance speech.

Rust received the award from the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce for her work as president of the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), a nonprofit organization that seeks donations to help acquire open space lands.

The group then resells the properties to government agencies for permanent preservation, including the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, counties, and state and federal agencies.
