The Skyline Interns got to know a local park, Redwood Regional Park, which in only minutes away from their campus. The interns learned the location of a few trailheads and hiked around. Students practice safe hiking and trail etiquette.
Familiarity and comfort with local parks is important for promoting park use and access to nature. Visiting a natural recreation area can be a part of a healthy active lifestyle and can reduce stress. Well maintained and accessible parks are important for making great cities.
The interns will soon return to one trail they hiked at the park, Fern Ravine, to participate in a restoration project with Friends of Sausal Creek.
