Ulistac Natural Area

Ulistac Natural Area

The Authority funded two phases of improvements for this 40-acres of open space along the Guadalupe River in Santa Clara, in 1999 and again in 2004. The projects included trail design and construction as well as removal of exotic plant species, revegetation, irrigation, and fence and gate improvements. The park now features native vegetation representing a variety of plant communities connected by a series of trails.

Martial Cottle Park

The Authority contributed funds towards the County’s efforts to open a new 288-acre urban park on the Martial Cottle Family Ranch. The Cottle family farmed the land for 150 years and the park reflects this agricultural history through providing land for farmers and educational activities. The park also features a trail system and several group picnic areas.

San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society: Tai Chi and Family Yoga

San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society: Tai Chi and Family Yoga

The Authority helped to fund the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society’s Tai Chi and Family Yoga, which will provide weekly and monthly programming to Bay Area families. Participants will benefit physically and mentally by experiencing a low-impact form of exercise surrounded by nature and wildlife. Hosting these types of programs at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge will also foster a sense of community among participants, allowing them to feel connected to each other, which also aids in their connection to the natural resources. In addition to exercise during these programs, attendees will also participate in nature walks where they will learn about the Refuge, habitats surrounding the Bay, wildlife that rely on these habitats, and their importance to the ecosystem.
