and presented with the support of    



San Mateo County Parks, Golden Hour Restoration Institute, San Bruno Mountain Watch,
the San Mateo County Parks Foundation, the South San Franciso Parks & Recreation Department, and the City of Brisbane

San Bruno Mountain is recognized as a global biological hotspot, with six plants that grow on the Mountain and nowhere else on earth. The morning session will be devoted to presentations of scientific research done on the Mountain, including our endemic manzanitas, endangered butterflies, and rare and endangered plants. The afternoon session will feature presentations of interest to the general hiking public, including an overview of the wildflowers commonly seen in the spring; an introduction to manzanitas, one of the iconic California plants; and a survey of the rare plants, as well as the recently re-discovered flowers that had been thought to be lost. The San Mateo County Natural Resource Manager will speak about the Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that preserved the Mountain. There will also be presentations by other experts on the political history that brought the HCP into being. There will be a signup for hikes on the Mountain led by experts scheduled for the following two weekends, April 25 & 26 & May 2 & 3.
