The San Bruno Mountain Muses program will provide underserved youth with opportunities to engage in outdoor creative expression during field trips to San Bruno Mountain. Activities will include participatory performances of local mountain songs, theatric storytelling at an outdoor amphitheater, land art utilizing natural materials, environmental poetry, nature journaling, and scientific illustrations of the mountain’s vegetation, wildlife, and landscapes.
San Bruno Mountain Watch is excited to develop and launch this new program for the 2019-2020 school year, serving six elementary schools in San Mateo County’s District 5. We are grateful to have received a $3,800 grant from the San Mateo County Arts Commission in support of this project, and are now fundraising through the summer of 2019 to raise the remaining funds we need to make this program successful throughout its first academic year!
Please make a donation to the Mountain Muses Fund by either clicking the purple button above or sending us a check with “Mountain Muses Fund” written in the memo to PO Box 53, Brisbane, CA 94005. The entirety of your generous contribution will be used to provide students with arts learning field trips to San Bruno Mountain and supply them with the necessary materials including activity booklets and art supplies.
For many of the students, these trips will be their first time on San Bruno Mountain; our guided arts activities will help them feel comfortable, engaged, and joyful. Thank you for supporting our efforts to connect the next generation with the mountain through memorable and creative experiences!

*The inspiration for the “San Bruno Mountain Muses” title is from the nine muses of Greek mythology. Calliope, Polyhymnia, Thalia, Urania, Terpsichore, Clio, Euterpe, Melpomene, and Erato were known as the nine goddesses of literary arts, music, visual arts, and science.
