About FRIENDS OF EDGEWOOD PARK-FRIENDS OF EDGEWOOD NATURAL PRESERVE
PO BOX 3422, REDWOOD CITY, CA 94064, US
The Friends of Edgewood Natural Preserve exists to protect and celebrate Edgewood as a unique treasure by promoting exemplary stewardship, and by reaching out with informative public programs.
Established in 1993 as a direct consequence of Edgewood’s designation as a Natural Preserve, the Friends of Edgewood is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 public benefit corporation funded 100% by membership dues and donations and sales proceeds. Our federal EIN (Employer Identification Number) is 94-3188191. Our key programs are year-round docent-led interpretive walks, including Junior Explorer walks for young people, strong support of habitat restoration at Edgewood led by the California Native Plant Society, and responsibility for operating the Education Center. We’ve also adopted a stretch of I-280 alongside Edgewood where we perform monthly trash clean-up for Caltrans.
