EVENT DATE: Sunday, March 12 at 11 AM – 1 PM (directions below)
My fellow knowledgeable Mountain enthusiasts Chuck and Loretta are experts in plant biology. Plants should be spectacular after all this rain. The hill habitat supports the federally listed endangered butterfly: the Mission Blue.
San BrunoMountainWatch (Mountainwatch.org), Friends of Sign Hill and San Francisco Peninsula Open Space Coalition have steadily worked to make North Sign Hill private land part of the Public a Sign Hill park. If our goal is achieved we can begin the process of restoration and local school environmental education on the North side of Sign Hill. In keeping North Sign Hill open we can involve our community in permanently celebrating our sacred local open space and local natural heritage history. And finally, and least important, keeping a North Sign open is on my bucket list.
See and learn our SSF outdoor museum that has been open forever.
The following is an intro to Chuck and Loretta's walk written by, I think, the City.
The portion of Sign Hill included in the city is park is protected but most of the land is in private ownership and vulnerable to development, come see this treasure of open space and appreciate its wide and open views.
We will meet at the west entrance to Sign Hill Park, where there is a small parking lot as well as some street parking. From the Oyster Point exit for 101, take Hillside Blvd. west turning east on Stonegate winding up the hill passed the Elks to Ridgeview Ct. at the end. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes as walking can be rough and uneven.
Heavy rain cancels
