Article Source:  San Mateo County CA

Yay! California ‘opens up’ June 15, with the removal of capacity limits and physical distancing requirements which means – fingers crossed! – summer will be a lot of fun with long overdue catch-ups with friends and family alike. With the exception of Pescadero Creek County Park which remains closed due to lingering unsafe conditions from last summer’s wildfire, all SMC Parks are open. Read on for our top 10 ways for you to enjoy the parks this summer.
Thanks to our generous supporters, the Parks Foundation is happy to support a range of worthy projects and programs in your San Mateo County Parks. From enhanced interpretation to habitat restoration to recreational activities, there is something for everyone to do, see, learn about and enjoy! Read on for more.
Over 2,800 acres burned at Pescadero Creek County Park in last summer's CZU lightning complex fire. Learn from San Mateo County Parks Natural Resource Manager, Hannah Ormshaw, as she explains the effects of the fire on Pescadero Creek Park, how the forest will recover, and the ecological case for active fire management.
Heads Up! There will be closures along Crystal Springs Regional Trail: today through June 11 and again June 15-18. Learn more here.
We love the Pacific Beach Coalition and thought we'd share that they are hiring for a Co-Executive Director. Learn more here.
The 2021 Junior Ranger Challenge is virtual this year, but still a lot of fun! Explore San Mateo County’s wealth of natural, cultural, and recreational resources with your family. The challenge is intended for Junior Rangers age 7-12 and you have until September 30 to complete the challenge. To become a Junior Ranger, you will have to go explore at least one San Mateo County Park and complete some of the activities found on this webpage.
Thank you for reading our email and staying engaged with the Parks Foundation and your San Mateo County Parks! We look forward to keeping you updated with events and activities as they are scheduled. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with questions and comments.
I look forward to our paths crossing in a park very soon!

Michele Beasley, Executive Director
San Mateo County Parks Foundation
