Special tours offered at Edgewood County Park
January 16, 2013, 05:00 AM

Throughout 2013, the Friends of Edgewood are celebrating their 20th anniversary and that of the designation of Edgewood County Park as a natural preserve.

In 1993, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors voted to preserve the park from development in perpetuity.

Edgewood Park, located in Redwood City, is known throughout the Bay Area for its springtime wildflower displays. The Friends of Edgewood volunteer more than 4,000 hours annually to offer docent-led wildflower walks, host visitors in the new Bill and Jean Lane Education Center and support the California Native Plant Society in weeding and habitat restoration efforts at Edgewood.

To celebrate this milestone, the Friends and San Mateo County Parks are presenting 2013: Year of Edgewood. Special guided nighttime walks, guided access to sensitive areas normally off limits and walks led by distinguished naturalists, scientists and professional photographers highlight these events. This access has never been possible in the past, but is offered now through partnership with San Mateo County Parks.

All events are free but donations are suggested. Because space is limited, visitors must register in advance. To register or to get more information visit friendsofedgewood.org.
