Bay Area Older Adults Environmental Education Park Crawl

Bay Area Older Adults Environmental Education Park Crawl

The Authority was proud to help fund Bay Area Older Adults’ Environmental Education Park Crawl program. The project consists of eight, 4-hour walks in different parks and one wildlife lecture. Each two- to four-mile walk has an environmental theme that educates the participating adults age 60+ about our valley’s parks, natural resources, and urban green spaces. It also includes lunch, coordination of transportation, parking fees, and three trained guides. Participants will benefit in multiple ways: safely walking outdoors in a group is critical in reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and depression, and learning about nature promotes cognitive health and reduces the risk of dementia.

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.

Santa Teresa County Historic Park

Santa Teresa County Historic Park

In 2002 the City of San Jose in partnership with Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation used a $900,000 grant from the Open Space Authority to purchase property to expand Santa Teresa County Park Historic Area. The 1.93-acre parcel adjoins the historic Bernal-Gulnac-Joice Ranch interpretive site and Santa Teresa Springs. The ranch buildings and surrounding 28-acre property are what remains of a nearly 10,000-acre tract granted to Jose Joaquin Bernal by the Mexican government in 1834.
