Annual Meeting Invitation

Dear Friends of Friedrich:
After a few years at Rancho Diana, this year we are once again holding our Annual Members Meeting at Friedrich Park. Please join us, and meet some old and new Friends. We are proud to help Natural Areas staff show off their new classroom facilities, which we helped to fund, and their beautiful patio. As a special treat for our members this year, we are offering hiking tours of the newer Friedrich acquisitions. Trails in these areas will not be open to the public for at least a year, so this is your chance to get a great preview of the “new Friedrich Park.” As usual, hikes will be led by the fabulous and experienced Natural Areas staff. Hope to see you there!
—Francine Romero
