Good news from Michelle Beasley, Executive Director of the S.M. County Parks Foundation: “I am very pleased to let you know that the San Mateo County Parks Foundation will grant the Friends of SPVP the $1,608 you requested ‘to help children to love, respect and be intrigued by wild creatures in California and on Earth by giving them real close encounters with living beings’. Congratulations!” Thus, we can now have the 4 children’s programs we wanted for Coastside youngsters:
Creepy Critters (Reptiles) on Feb. 18; Animals of the Americas on April 7; The Beetle Lady on July 11; Bats—Live! On Nov. 14. All events feature live animals! The first 2 are from Wildmind (was Wildlife Assoc). Details to follow on the Events page.
