Instead of the Pancake Breakfast – A BookFest!

By: Ariel Cherbowsky Corkidi, Director of San Bruno Mountain Watch,, 415-467-6681

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, San Bruno Mountain Watch will miss hosting our beloved Pancake Breakfast. However, we are excited to present a bookfest!
Please join us in celebrating the release of a newly published book, Earth’s Own Animal. Authored by David Schooley, San Bruno Mountain Watch’s founder, Earth’s Own Animal abounds with more than 250 pages of San Bruno Mountain art and poetry plus historical essays about the people’s movement to save the mountain.
Our Mountain Bookfest Fundraiser will begin on September 12th and continue through September 19th, when we will start the joyful distribution of the book to our friends and supporters, through home delivery or pick up at our Mission Blue Nursery.
The book will take readers on a thoughtful and exciting journey through the landscapes and stories of San Bruno Mountain, intimately guided by someone whose heart has been beating in rhythm with the life of mountain for 50 years.
