On December 4, 2015, Creekside staff and Edgewood volunteers seeded three additional colonies of federal- and state-endangered San Mateo thornmint at Edgewood Natural Preserve. These additional colonies are key to preventing extinction of this annual forb which exists in the wild only at one additional colony at Edgewood. Funding for this project has been generously provided by the Friends of Edgewood.
