Room to Breathe – Open Spaces on the San Francisco Peninsula
Open Spaces on the San Francisco Peninsula
Because of far-sighted conservationists acting in the 1960s and 1970s, the San Francisco Peninsula has not become completely urbanized. On the contrary, we who live here can enjoy tens of thousands of acres of open space with hundreds of miles of trails for hikers, bikers, and equestrians.
Renée and Jack will talk about how this land preservation and public access came about and introduce you to some of the wide varieties of local open spaces – beautiful natural areas – that you can visit to recreate, rejuvenate, volunteer, learn, and support. They’ll do that primarily through the lenses of one public agency, the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD), and one private nonprofit organization, the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST).
Renée is Program Manager for Docents, Interpretation, and Environmental Education at MROSD. Jack is a docent at MROSD and a UUCPA member. Both of them are nature photographers, and the presentation will include some of their photos.
