Guadalupe Oak Grove Park - a natural wonder worth preserving
The Friends of Guadalupe Oak Grove Park formed as an alliance of neighbors and park patrons concerned about the long-term stewardship of a uniquely-natural park in San Jose. Guadalupe Oak Grove Park has very little in the way of amenities, such as buildings or equipment, but rather is left in its natural state, complete with beautiful native oaks, wildflowers, and typical Santa Clara Valley flora and fauna.
The Friends of Guadalupe Oak Grove Park have been putting together dedicated volunteer efforts for the past few years, clearing and trimming and cleaning up trails and making certain that Guadalupe Oak Grove Park remains the community treasure that it is intended to be.
Sheep and goats have been brought in to help clear and trim the natural plants in way that helps preserve the wonder of the park without disturbing it or imposing less natural maintenance.
The City of San Jose provides support for these efforts, but with limited funds, there is more work than there is funding, so the volunteer work is even more important. The Friends of Guadalupe Oak Grove Park is seeking donations from people who care about this park and the natural habitat that it uniquely houses. Every dollar counts.
