During 2020, there was a lot of focus on keeping parks open, safe and welcoming for visitors. Park rangers had their hands full with cleaning bathrooms, picking up litter, clearing trails and talking with people. That’s only part of the work. San Mateo County Parks has been busy with park plans and projects too. Here are five projects we have our eyes on.
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation provides grants to volunteer groups that look after one or more San Mateo County Parks. Volunteers provide a variety of services on behalf of parks and park visitors, from pulling weeds and growing native plants to leading hikes and picking up litter. We are beyond grateful for the good work these groups and countless volunteers do to care for San Mateo County Parks.
