POST EVENTS

Peninsula Open Space Trust is postponing all in-person events and outings until further notice to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and under the direction of local health authorities. We look forward to bringing our community together through fun, engaging and informative events again once doing so is deemed safe. We make this decision with the health and wellbeing of our wonderful supporters in mind.

If you’re looking to get outside, check out our hikes-finder tool or our recreational field guides.
