SPRING WILDFLOWER WALKS
Free Docent-led Wildflower Walks
Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve, located near I-280 and Edgewood Rd. in Redwood City, is famous for its spectacular spring wildflower displays.  Friends of Edgewood docents offer free wildflower walks every Saturday and Sunday starting at 10:00 from March 16 through June 9.
The approximately three-hour walks through grasslands, chaparral, coastal scrub, and foothill woodlands, offer a surprising amount of biodiversity.  You are likely to see 50-100 plants in flower on the moderately paced, three-mile journey. Edgewood supports over 500 distinct plant species, four of which are federally listed as endangered or threatened. In addition, the fragile Bay checkerspot butterfly, one of the threatened species, has made its home in the unique habitat afforded by the serpentine grasslands. The various plant communities also provide habitat for frogs, lizards, foxes, coyote, bobcat, raccoon, deer, and over 70 resident and migratory birds.
Visitors can complement their docent-led walk by visiting the new Education Center located near the main entrance and featuring interactive exhibits that explain Edgewood’s connection to the surrounding landscape and its history.
Go to friendsofedgewood.org or call 1-866-GO-EDGEWOOD (1-866-463-3439) for more information.
