This page provides information for various advocacy actions and related links. In all interactions with others, please be respectful. An initial action that all can take is to sign the petition to save the historic woodland trees and preserve the woodland, its trails, its beautiful picnic areas, and protect the wildlife.

Take action now!

Because the Reimagine Flood Park plan has already been approved, it will be carried out and the woodland trees will be cut down, unless the community demonstrates that a very large portion of the park-using community wants the trees saved. This is very much an uphill battle!

SPECIAL ALERT — The San Mateo County Parks Department is holding a Community meeting via Zoom to present the plan and get input from the community. It’s on Wednesday, February 2nd, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. Please attend and speak up for keeping the woodland intact!You can reach the meeting online by clicking this .  County’s public meeting announcement is .

You can enter your e-mail address and we’ll send you session information as soon as it’s available.
