It Won't Be Easy Saying Goodbye

Today we heard the terrible news that Mary Baird had died suddenly earlier this week.

Mary was for many years a dedicated volunteer in our Stewardship Programs - digging up many weeds, with mattock in hand, at the Colma Creek restoration area on San Bruno Mountain. She was also a dedicated Mission Blue Nursery volunteer, religiously showing up every week to do her job with her usual attention to detail - carefully transplanting delicate seedlings, worrying about each one and concerned whether it would survive.

After her recent cataract surgery she was looking forward to winter seed processing sessions - where she would now be able to actually see what she was doing!

We will miss her - as Mary is irreplaceable.
