The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is hosting a book-signing and public outreach event on Saturday, March 2, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park, CA.
The event is in celebration of the District’s 40th anniversary and the publication of its new coffee table book titled Room to Breathe: The Wild Heart of the San Francisco Peninsula published by Heyday Books.
This event is free to the public and includes nature-themed activities and crafts, information about area preserves and outdoor recreation opportunities, and a chance to meet the book’s editor and some of its contributors.
In addition, at 1:30 p.m., Malcolm Margolin, local author and founder and executive director of Heyday Books, will give a brief talk about Room to Breathe and history on the Bay Area.
The District is one of the largest urban regional preserve districts in California with over 60,000 acres and more than 200 miles of trails for hikers, horseback riders, and bicyclists on 26 preserves including the tree-studded skyline of the Santa Cruz Mountains from San Mateo to Los Gatos.
