Pass on a Legacy of Pleasure:
A San Bruno Mountain Walk for Elders and their Kids

San Bruno Mountain,
At the Southern Boundary of San Francisco
Saturday, October 17, 10:00 – 11:00 AM
A chance for seniors to spring a surprise on grown or still- growing kids – or for grown kids to entertain their elders!

A leisurely walk on flat ground will reveal unexpected secrets of San Bruno, next to San Francisco Bay, where one of the mountain’s three 5000 year old shell mounds lies hidden in the folds of wonderful Buckeye Canyon. Ancient ice age plant survivors hug the mountaintop, and endangered butterflies cling to life.

If you’ve never been on San Bruno, treat yourself and your offspring to a new and different vantage point of the Bay Area that you’ve probably driven by many times, without being aware of the amazing diversity and history of this Bayshore location. It’s not often we have a chance to spring a surprise on our kids once they’ve grown up, but here’s an opportunity to introduce them to a discovery they might not stumble on.


The scope of the Bay Area, of San Francisco, and a view of ocean and bay will give you a new perspective of our Bay Area home at the edge of the continent.
