As we all face these extraordinary times in response to the COVID-19 order, the Board wants to thank everyone in the Midpen family for their efforts and successes in keeping most Midpen lands and trails open so people can get exercise, get out of their apartment or house, breathe in the fresh air, and have a respite in nature. We are proud of our staff for acting creatively and pro-actively so we can continue to serve the public in this way, while also continuing our constant work of managing our open spaces to protect our vital natural resources and enhance our overall regional resilience within our spectacular Bay Area home.

More than ever, we need “room to breathe”. Thank you for the support you have all shown Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District over the years, and please join us in thanking our staff for their dedication and continued work.

Good health to you all,

Ana Ruiz, General Manager            Karen Holman, Board President
