This week, the San Mateo County Parks Foundation made another gift to the San Mateo County Parks Department. Thanks to our wonderful donors, this gift of $151,826 allows several programs and projects to move forward. They include:
- Continuing to offer low-income, public transportation-dependent communities the opportunity to access our stunning parks through the County Park Shuttle. The Park Shuttle is a free weekend service with two routes that connects the communities of East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks and Downtown Redwood City to two parks: Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve in Redwood City and Wunderlich Park in Woodside.
Join the San Mateo County Parks Foundation for our new park mixer: Coyote Nights (where howling at the moon is totally appropriate)! Starting on Thursday, June 22, we invite you to come hang out with us and make new friends, sip local beer courtesy of Devil’s Canyon Brewery, and get to know San Mateo County’s awesome parks. Rangers and REI instructors will be on hand to discuss a range of topics at our various “trailheads.” Kick back in an REI-designed outdoor lounge and enjoy Coyote Point as your day winds down. What a perfect way to kick off summer! Coyote Nights mixers will occur throughout the summer, so if you can’t make the first evening, there are more to follow! Please RSVP here.
