South San Francisco, Ca December 8, 2019
We’ve worked so hard to secure open space, to preserve it in perpetuity, especially as our little City continues to grow, with more and more cranes racing into the skies. Adding another 20 acres of parkland on the north facing side of Sign Hill, in October 2017, was a huge win for those who love South City, and love open space. Now we have the opportunity to work with what we have saved, by helping to restore the habitat of this beautiful jewel in the midst of our concrete jungle.
Welcome to Emma Lewis, our new Natural Resources Specialist with the City of South San Francisco Parks & Recreation Department, who will be leading the Sign Hill habitat restoration project. She will be leading volunteer events on Sign Hill starting January 2020, and shares the invitation below, and it is our hope that many hands will make light work in this amazing project. Grab a few friends and start a New Year Resolution of outdoor beauty and work that feeds the soul!
We asked for it! Now let’s work to preserve it!
OPEN SPACE – The views from up on Sign Hill are incredible – join this group today!
