|A wide corridor leads along the upper boundary, threading between dense growth on either side|
|A magnificent Heritage Oak that has watched history pass by since the Ohlones gathered its acorns. Signs of wildlife are apparent here, even to the casual passer-by.|
|Down by the creek, shady thickets provide shelter for both land animals and pond-dwellers.
As a child, did you ever get to examine the inhabitants of pond water under a microscope? A priceless joy of youthful exploration that needs to be preserved - before the few remnants of nature are all landscaped into oblivion.
