Coyote Point fundraising effort aims to install shade shelters, maintain tree health

in Community

A fundraising effort aims to make long-overdue improvements to Coyote Point Park in San Mateo, which saw a record number of visitors last year.

The San Mateo County Parks Foundation has established the Coyote Point Stewardship Fund to fun shade shelters for beach picnic areas, to maintain a healthy tree canopy and to provide park rangers with tools needed to address increased maintenance demand.

The Parks Foundation said maintaining tree health and safety in the 149-acre Coyote Point is of particular interest.

“Stressed and unhealthy eucalyptus trees can drop limbs and attract pests, most notably the longhorned borer,” the Foundation said. “This only adds to the stress of the tree. The removal of unhealthy trees around picnic sites is a priority for the Foundation.”
