Ever hike under the stars and a full moon? Committee for Green Foothills’ members*, join us for an moderately strenuous 4-mile evening hike in Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve with Craige Edgerton, long-time open space advocate. If we time it right, you’ll catch the sun setting just as the moon is rising.
Dogs are not permitted.
*Committee for Green Foothills’ members are those who have a made a donation in the past year.
Join us for a special afternoon in celebration of Committee for Green Foothills’ 57-year legacy and people who have dedicated their life to protecting open space. Past honorees include Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Congressman Pete McCloskey, California Coastal Commission Chief Peter Douglas, National Park Ranger and author Shelton Johnson, and the famed musician and activist Joan Baez.
This fall, we honor the legendary Joe Cotchett, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP, for his exemplary leadership in environmental justice, including the fight for public access to Martin’s Beach, his generous pro bono work, and his commitment to the next generation of leadership. The event will be held at the spectacular Wickett Ranch, a property surrounded by old growth redwood trees and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Wickett Ranch is above Woodside in unincorporated San Mateo County.
We hope you will join us Sunday, September 22, 2019 for wine and hors d’oeuvres as we celebrate this inspirational environmental advocate!
