Great press coverage of the grant POST and the San Mateo County Resource Conservation District have received to restore the floodplain of Butano Creek in Pescadero! Good things to come for Pescadero residents, fish populations, and our local landscapes. http://www.hmbreview.com/news/rcd-receives-grant-for-butano-creek-flood-plain/article_d961fa7c-4d0f-11e5-8d4a-b3d2d14e0d94.html

It's #FreshAirFriday! Spot some bats and learn more about "nature's most misunderstood mammal" tomorrow at Midpen's Bats of Alpine Pond event. Details here: http://www.openspace.org/activities/docent/bats-alpine-pond
Join docents Karen DeMello and Jan Hintermeister to learn some facts and dispel some myths about the world’s most misunderstood mammal: the bat. As the sun goes down, you’ll hang out near the David C. Daniels Nature Center to see whether bats appear over Alpine Pond, returning to your car before darkness sets in. Bring binoculars if you have them.

For the first time in a century, a pack of wolves is roaming free in California! Defenders of Wildlife called the wolves' return to California "an Endangered Species Act success story in the making," and we agree. Here are the pups of the Shasta Pack, as seen on a wildlife cam in Siskiyou County. http://www.mercurynews.com/san-mateo-county-times/ci_28673591/conservation-breakthrough-wolf-pack-discovered-northern-california
Fish and Wildlife has been preparing for the arrival of a pack since 2011, when a wolf designated OR7 crossed into California from Oregon.

Where's your favorite place to camp between Sunday and Thursday? http://www.sfgate.com/outdoors/article/A-big-boon-for-the-weekday-camper-6427314.php
A seismic shift in the outdoor universe is imminent. In the Bay Area, the world is about to be split in two: one half for those who visit parks between 5 p.m. Fridays and 5 p.m. Sundays and the other for those who venture out Mondays through Thursdays.

Communications Intern Lily Hartzell reflects on her summer internship with POST today on our blog, Field Notes. Thanks for all your work this summer, Lily! http://openspacetrust.org/blog/lilys-internship-reflection/

The USDA ranked San Mateo County #17 out of all 3,111 American counties in its number of "natural aspects of attractiveness." (Santa Clara and Santa Cruz were #63 and #12, respectively.)

The most beautiful places in America (and the ugliest, too).
