The exhibits on Edgewood’s human history show portraits and present oral interviews, heard through hand-held earpieces, that include reminiscences (read by an actor) about the people who led the effort to preserve Edgewood.

Edgewood Park Bill and Jean Lane Education Center tells the story of the park Story by Dave Boyce | Photos by Ron Yeo


ithin its one square mile, Edgewood Park in Woodside contains wetlands, grasslands, woodlands and chaparral populated by the usual Peninsula mammals — deer, coyote, bobcat and raccoon — but there are also 70 species of native birds and more than 500 of native plants. And there are inhabitants that are not native (and therefore not welcome), such as Italian ryegrass and Italian thistle, the European starling and the Argentine ant. That’s a lot to describe using exhibits inside a building, but the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center at Edgewood See EDGEWOOD PARK, page 18

Wooden components of the education center include floors made from reclaimed shipping crates, and beams and framing made from certified sustainable sources. The windows open to the air and provide natural lighting.

This diorama replicates plant life in soil characterized by the presence of serpentine rock, which is toxic to many plants because of its concentrations of nickel, chromium and cobalt, according to a Wikipedia entry. Among the plants that do thrive there are the dwarf (or California) plantain, lomatium, blue dicks and goldfields.

Park and Natural Preserve gives it a shot. The intended audiences for the interactive displays are school children, amateur naturalists and casual visitors. The topics are “Edgewood’s rare and interesting life forms, fascinating soils, and mosaic of plant communities and wildlife habitats,” according a website description. “The exhibits and displays in the Center reveal these stories, beckoning visitors, both young and older, to hear the land speak.” The $2.5 million sustainably constructed building opened in April 2011 and is named in honor of Portola Valley philanthropists and environmentalists Bill and Jean Lane. The center at 6 Old Stage Coach Road in unincorporated Emerald Hills is open on weekends between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The hours change seasonally. In the spring, park docents lead wildflower walks on spring weekends. Once a month throughout the year, Audubon Society docents lead bird walks. There are also park residents that can be dangerous if riled, including rattlesnakes, skunks, yellow jackets and bees. The urban surroundings, including Interstate 280, have made an impact on the park. The San Mateo thornmint grows only in San Mateo County, according to the San Francisco-based Wild Equity Institute. For reasons unknown, the population has plummeted to 500 individual plants from an estimated 53,000 in 1994. Mary Wilson, a Friends of Edgewood volunteer, is a staff member at the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center.

“The population is now so imperiled that the (wildlife) managers believe that even a low number of additional visitors could damage the plant by compacting soil or introducing weed seeds,” the Institute’s website says. The population of Bay checkerspot butterflies at Edgewood was 100,000 in 1981, 500 by 1987, and then none at all. Vehicle traffic on I-280 is considered a principal culprit. Stuart Weiss, the chief scientist at the Creekside Center for Earth Observation in Menlo Park, released about 1,000 caterpillars in 2007 in hopes of reintroducing a native population. “To ensure that the species isn’t lost again, the area is carefully mowed at specific times to keep the invasive weeds from thriving,” according to the Wild Equity Institute site. “Edgewood Park remains one of the few places to try and see this vanishing species.” A

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan. com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-525448-AB . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of

this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee's Attorney.
