Friends of Edgewood Natural Preserve

A chunk of green space creeping east of the Highway 280 corridor, Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve is an assemblage of oak groves scattered across rolling serpentine grasslands (i.e. where soils rich in the mineral serpentinite support native California grasses). Exploring the meandering trail system is a treat year-round, but the spring wildflowers are known as the real showstoppers.

Friends of Edgewood Natural Preserve work to protect and, where needed, restore these native ecosystems while connecting the community to this incredible resource. The Friends group, a California public benefit corporation, organizes volunteers to advocate for the park when necessary, restore the native habitat (by removing invasive species), hold celebratory events and lead bird, nature and wildflower walks.
