San Bruno Mountain Watch has been advocating for years to preserve and protect the Daly City Dunes. There have been a long list of successes and the transfer of Daly City-owned parcels into a new park is another step in preserving a larger area of the dunes - much of which has already been developed. This new park will expand the existing Hillside Park.
A movement is underway to preserve Sign Hill Park as officials agreed to nominate the home of the signature "South San Francisco The Industrial City" declaration for conservation and restoration through a regional grant program.
One of the most important activities on the mountain -- much of it a state and county park -- is a program to protect and restore the area's biodiversity, led by Cannon and scores of passionate volunteers involved with the environmental nonprofit San Bruno Mountain Watch.
Some local conservationists have taken on an effort to protect a portion of South San Francisco's Sign Hill from potential development as they explore forming an open-space trust that could assist in protecting such environmentally sensitive land.
Whether you are flying into San Francisco International Airport or driving north on Highway 101, the landmark 'South San Francisco The Industrial City' lettering on Sign Hill makes locals know they are returning home.
