On any given day, there are so many stories that unfold on our protected open spaces. We wanted to capture some of those untold stories – your moments and experiences connecting with the land and each other.

That’s why, on May 5th, 2017, we spent the entire day at one of our most iconic projects, Windy Hill (see map below). This was the first property we protected from development and is beloved by many throughout the Bay Area.

Here is what we uncovered in just one day in the life of Windy Hill:

    It looks like some of the video was taken using a drone. Are drones permitted in the park? I love hiking at Windy Hill, but wouldn’t want to have drones buzzing overhead.

    • Yes, a drone was used for part of this video. POST protected this property, but the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (Midpen) now manages the land. We acquired a permit from Midpen before filming this short video. That permit allowed the use of a drone. If you’d like more information let us know. Thanks for watching and for your interest.
