Help Preserve San Bruno Mountain

Rare and Endangered Diablo Rock Rose, Helianthella castanea

Step out anywhere in Brisbane and you can't help but behold the picturesque landscape provided by San Bruno Mountain. That's exactly why San Bruno Mountain Watch is asking for volunteers to join them in an upcoming and ongoing event - weeding the mountain of non-native, invasive plants from the habitat on City-owned open space. The event will be taking place this Saturday, February 3rd (heavy rain will postpone the event until the following week). Meet at 12:45 pm at the San Bruno Mountain Watch office located at 44 Visitacion Ave., 2nd Floor. This will be an ongoing event, taking place monthly on the first Saturday of each month, at various locations on the Mountain. It's a great opportunity to get some exercise, see some great views, and lend a hand to preserve the native habitat on the Mountain. Sturdy shoes and gloves are recommended. For more information, contact Mtn. Watch at 467-6631 or Mary Gutekanst at 468-1548.
