San Bruno Mountain Inaugural Hike

On April 21st, 2019, Wildfires to Wildflowers held the inaugural hike at San Bruno Mountain. Turnout was great, with maximum capacity having been reached within one week of the hike announcement. On the sunny Sunday, a long train of hikers followed the narrow path, weaving from the skate park at the base of the mountain in Owl Canyon, through the grasslands and oak woodlands, over streams and under fallen branches, and finishing at the Ohlone shellmound in Buckeye Canyon in the shade of an old Toyon. We met wildflowers like Owls Clover and Douglas Iris. We saw a comparison between the root system of the dominant invasive grasses, only an inch deep at most, compared with the perennial native grasses that are sequestering carbon deep into the earth for up to 300 years, and learned of the potential of these grasses to be part of the solution to the climate crisis.
