If you've been around the nursery or field restoration sites this fall, you've probably already met our new interns, Shirley Young and Martin Alexander.
Fall on The Mountain brings us cool foggy days, sprinkles of rain and Nature’s berry bonanza to the delight of both resident and migrating birds. Doug keeps his eared perked up for arriving wintering warblers, and eyes up for migrating raptors passing through on their way to breeding grounds.
In his Mountain Journal for Summer 2018, Doug addresses the importance of our fog - and reminds us that this source of moisture is a critical factor for our coastal flora. As we endure our typical summer of fog, it’s a good time to remember that many plants on San Bruno Mountain depend on this summer regime for survival.
Conservation victory for San Bruno Mountain’s famous foothill! Read about the successful efforts to protect a sizable portion of Sign Hill for public use and local biodiversity.
You have to get up as early as Doug to come across a coyote pup on San Bruno Mountain! Some late rains made for beautiful wildflower displays, and Doug and fellow botanizer Mark found more interesting flora - what a special place.
How did this Winter compare with last year's? No comparison it seems water-wise! But as usual, the Mountain starts putting on its visual display in early Winter.
