Did y0u know over 40 acres of Sign Hill is not preserved as open space and is privately held with the potential to develop? There is an urgency to acquire these parcels as we see development after development come through our City – we must save this wonderful gem in the midst of our concrete jungle! So know your support of SBMW extends to our efforts here in South City too! Sign Hill is the ‘little sister’ to San Bruno Mountain!
In addition to the Pancake Breakfast the Mission Blue Nursery will be open to the public allowing a great opportunity to purchase native plants that are low maintenance and drought tolerant. The Mission Blue Nursery’s goal is restoring the native ecosystem of San Bruno mountain. To learn which plants would do well in your landscape CLICK HERE.
One of the most direct ways you can help nature is by planting the native plants that have evolved with your local fauna over millions of years and on whom this wildlife depends. Mission Blue Nursery offers over 110 different species of plants from shrubs and grasses, to wildflowers and trees that would be appropriate for much of the Bay Area and the coast of California. As a non-profit nursery, all sales support our conservation and restoration efforts on San Bruno Mountain.
