Capturing Edgewood Park

Bill and Jean Lane Education Center tells the story of the park

by Dave Boyce

Within its one square mile, Edgewood Park in Woodside contains wetlands, grasslands, woodlands and chaparral populated by the usual Peninsula mammals — deer, coyote, bobcat and raccoon — but there are also 70 species of native birds and more than 500 of native plants. And there are inhabitants that are not native (and therefore not welcome), such as Italian ryegrass and Italian thistle, the European starling and the Argentine ant.
