Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), San Mateo County Parks, and Friends of Huddart and Wunderlich Parks for a fun morning with your children, surrounded by trees and nature at Huddart Park! Knowledgeable staff and volunteers will lead activities tailored for kids ages 2-10, as well as a longer nature walk for older kids and adults of all ages. This will be a special fall-themed Family Nature Day with special activities celebrating the season!
We will share more details about where to meet once you register for the event! Healthy and nutritious snacks will be provided. Please note that there is a $6 parking fee at Huddart Park.
All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult guardian at all times. *This presentation includes two live owls (not free-flying).
This event is part of POST’s community event series. These events are open to the general public as well as POST donors, and we hope you will join us! We also curate a separate series of private events for our donor community. Find out more about how you can support POST here: openspacetrust.org/support
The forested slopes and steep, cool canyons of Huddart Park are located within easy reach of the population centers of the San Francisco Peninsula. The park is only 3.5 miles west of Highway 84. With barbecue pits, a playground, grassy meadows, and hiking and riding trails, Huddart Park makes a great place to have a picnic or explore a redwood forest.
Huddart Park offers numerous trails, some for horseback riding and hiking, and some for hiking only. Trails run along gulches and creeks, others traverse unique hillside habitats and lead you to breathtaking views of the countryside.
Peninsula Open Space Trust protects open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all. Since 1977, POST has protected over 76,000 acres in San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz Counties.
The Friends of Huddart and Wunderlich Parks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the local environment and historic legacies of these two exceptional parks in Woodside, CA. The Friends are a combination of volunteers, donors, paid staff, and board members — all collaborating with the park rangers to preserve and protect these special resources.
The San Mateo County Parks Department operates 20 separate parks, encompassing over 17,000 acres, and 190 miles of county and local trails, including three regional trails.
