San Bruno Mountain - Native Planting and Hike | San Bruno Mountain State & County Park | sábado, 23. febrero 2019

Come experience breathtaking bay views while helping the endangered Mission Blue and Callipe Silverspot butterflies. San Bruno Mountain Watch ranger, Ariel Cherbowsky, will help us learn about what makes this natural monument on the Peninsula so special. You'll learn the names of the butterflies' favorite nectar plants and some of the grasses used by the caterpillars as well. Perhaps we'll witness the slow-moving fingers of fog coming up and over the mountain ridges as it makes its way toward the bay. 
This is a kid-friendly event and easy/moderate hike with narrow trails :) Unfortunately, dog buddies will have to stay home. 
Please wear comfortable clothing, sturdy shoes and layers as it can be sunny, but also windy and depending on the fog, chilly. Make sure to bring your water and since the walk is in the middle of the day, bring a lunch to enjoy at the site as well.
Bring gloves if you have them or if you are sensitive to plants and grasses. Tools to plant will be provided. We will begin the day at the planting site but follow it up with a short and kid-friendly 1.25 mile hike through Owl Canyon. A longer hike (2 miles) will be optional and depend on group interest. 
Meeting location to start will be, at Buckeye Canyon, 69 South Hill Drive, Brisbane, CA 94005. Please copy the address exactly in your GPS so you arrive at the right place. 
Please RSVP as the group size is limited to 20 people. 
Driving Directions to Buckeye Canyon (Type in the address "69 South Hill Drive, Brisbane, CA 94005" for navigation systems/google maps)
1) From Bayshore Blvd, turn onto Valley Drive, the entrance to Crocker Industrial Park in Brisbane.
2) Drive down Valley Drive and turn left at the stoplight at the intersection of Valley Drive and South Hill Drive
3) Drive a very short distance on South Hill Drive; as the road begins to curve, immediately after a pedestrian crosswalk, you'll see a steep driveway on your left with potholes. Turn into that steep driveway and drive up. 
4) Immediately at the top of the driveway turn left and stop parallel to the concrete drainage ditch, next to the trailhead entrance sign to Buckeye Canyon. This is the location of the trail into Buckeye Canyon ( ZYZLWqeDEpH2)
