Hi Fellow Ramblers,
This group has held a fantastic variety of hikes this year. One of the principal benefactors of our fine hiking venues is POST - Peninsula Open Space Trust. If you have money to donate to a charity at the end of this year, consider a donation to POST. Almost all the parks labeled "Open Space" were originally purchased by POST, then turned over to various public agencies so that we can enjoy them. Their website says 63,000 acres so far! Visit POST website
if you want to know more.
The ongoing maintenance of many of these parks is the respnsibility of MROSD - Mid Peninsula Regional Open Space District
. I see their donate link
under that About menu.
I am very appreciative of the way POST works - they stay out of political issues. Their mission seems to be mainly to buy land to keep it available for us in a natural state.
I hope no one feels this email is spam, but if it does bother you, please email me or leave comments on the group message board.
Have a wonderful holiday and enjoy some more hikes!
