Event description

Description

Join the Friends of Edgewood for lunch and engaging conversation as we celebrate 25 years of service at Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve, and look ahead to the next 25 years.

Come as early as 11:15 am for drinks, snacks, and to mingle with your friends. Our luncheon service starts promptly at 11:45.

Hannibal

After lunch, noted author Mary Ellen Hannibal will talk about the role of the citizen scientist in fighting invasive species and preserving native species in the Bay Area. Hannibal's book, Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction, chronicles her very personal experiences as a citizen scientist. In particular, she writes about efforts to restore the Bay checkerspot butterfly at Edgewood.

Hannibal is a Stanford Media Fellow and an Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellow. She is a recipient of the National Society of Science Writer’s Science and Society Award and Stanford University’s Knight-Risser Prize for Western Environmental Journalism.

You may purchase an autographed copy of Hannibal's Citizen Scientist at the event.

Weiss

Following Hannibal's talk, Dr. Stuart B. Weiss will look ahead to the next 25 years at Edgewood in the context of Project 467, an ambitious habitat management project aimed at redoubling Friends of Edgewood’s efforts to eliminate or suppress invasive plants and restore native ecosystems across all of Edgewood's 467 acres. Weiss is Chief Scientist of Creekside Science for Earth Observation, which has overseen the efforts to reintroduce the Bay checkerspot butterfly and preserve the San Mateo thornmint at Edgewood.

Parking for the event is available one block away at the public parking lot at Walnut Street and San Carlos Avenue. Please allow 15 minutes to park and walk to the venue. Limited ADA parking is available at Casa de Flores.
