Third Saturday Nature Walk at Edgewood: How and why to create a California native garden

Saturday, August 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

Edgewood Park is the only nature preserve within San Mateo County, and it is a gem! Although it is less than 500 acres, over 500 different plants grow there, many of them are very rare. And the soils that are found there are the same ones found in many neighborhoods in San Mateo County. This means that the plants that grow there will also thrive in our neighborhood. I hope you can join me and share my enthusiasm for supporting water conservation and habitats for the animals that need our local plants.

Join Friends of Edgewood docent Elaine Salinger for this great hike and learn some ideas for your very own California native garden!

Pace & Terrain: This leisurely 3 mile hike traverses gentle hills and lasts 3 hours.
Bring: Water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack.
Restrooms and water: Available only near the main entrance.
Dogs: Dogs are not allowed in Edgewood Park.
Where: Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve: Bill and Jean Lane Education Center.
