San Bruno Mountain State Park

by on July 08, 2012

Famed biologist E.O. Wilson once named San Bruno Mountain one of the world biodiversity hotspots, because so many native species remained here, isolated by the city below. A must-see!

A hulking presence on San Francisco’s southeastern border, San Bruno Mountain forms a natural boundary between San Francisco and the Peninsula. Though development has several times threatened to pave its slopes, the mountain has remained a unique island of open space in a sea of residential sprawl. This continued salvation is courtesy of a density of rare species–so many that biologist E.O. Wilson once named San Bruno Mountain one of eighteen global biodiversity hotspots in need of protection.
