mid peninsula open space logoTo celebrate Hispanic Heritage month Skyline College Biology Professor Carina Anttila-Suarez and two Mid-peninsula Regional Open Space Docents Lina Mesa and Ann Reisenauer are inviting the campus community to hike at Windy Hill Preserve in Portola Valley this Sunday, October 12. The five mile hike will be led in Spanish and takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please wear comfortable shoes, bring a sack lunch and water.  The Mid-peninsula Regional Open Space District is our local greenbelt system and compromises over 62,000 acres of land in 26 open space preserves. The open space hosts many of our college field trips and is a valuable teaching tool formed by diverse ecosystems that are free for our community to enjoy.
