You can help inspire people to care for, learn about and enjoy our local parks.
In partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Parks, the Foundation raises funds to support projects, programs and volunteers to benefit our parks: recreational, environmental and educational programs and accessibility, enhancement and maintenance projects.
