An idea for every week of the year. No. 48 is a good one to kick off the New Year 🙂 Happy exploring!
This past fall, the San Mateo County Parks Foundation created a new small grants program called Enhancing Equitable Access. The goal is to fund and support organizations that increase opportunities for Black, Indigenous and people of color, and low-income and marginalized youth and their families to enjoy the many benefits of being in parks and nature. Grants of $3,000 were awarded to the following organizations which are expanding access to our parks, trails and coastal areas for those who may face barriers, including a lack of transportation, a lack of representation and/or a lack of awareness about the parks themselves.
