In 2013, PG&E proposed a new gas pipeline that would cut directly through Edgewood County Park and Preserve’s serpentine grasslands, home to the Bay checkerspot butterfly and various endangered and threatened plant and wildflower species. Edgewood contains some of the Peninsula’s most important serpentine grassland habitats and is home to seven species that are listed on the federal or state endangered species list. The park’s rare wildflowers are famous locally, and many hikers come each spring to see the spectacular display.
After Committee for Green Foothills and our partner organizations met with PG&E to express our concern over the proposed pipeline route, PG&E informed us that the pipeline project would be delayed. We are continuing to monitor this issue.
Our Goal: We are working with a broad coalition to advocate for PG&E to route the pipeline outside the park entirely.
