Daly City Dunes Hike, Apr26

Sunday April 26th is the last day of our Spring Hike Series! Join Del Schembari, long time activist and SBMW Board Member to see these rare inland dunes. Del has worked tirelessly for the preservation of this unique, ancient and rare habitat on San Bruno Mountain. The effort to save the dunes from development has covered many years and Del has been there for the duration. This inland dune system dates back more than 180,000 years. Some areas are relatively intact and support rare dune plant species like the federally listed San Francisco Lessingia. Also present are San Francisco Spineflower, Dune Suncup and Blue Beach Lupine. And there is more - an Ohlone Indian shellmound can also be found high up the dunes.

Please sign up in advance at the online hike signup page or contact the office by email or phone. There will be three, short, 1-hour walks at 10:00am, 11:00am and 1:00pm so please let us know which time you would like to come.
