Reading this story makes me wonder if our conservation/education organizations might consider developing some Spanish speaking guides (native speakers or not) to lead guided hikes. They could be relaxing hikes of different lengths, or they might also focus -- on birds, trees, or whatever. Families would probably love this opportunity.

Sierra Club, Sempervirens, Hidden Villa, Green Foothills, POST, Midpeninsula Open Space District -- what do you think? Thank you for this article and gracias to Mr. González for his wonderful work.
