March 19, 2019 at the Moonlight Walk on De Anza Trail 147 people came out in potentially rainy weather. The moon DID show itself, documented by Ron Ober, amateur astronomer. Ron let walkers observe the precious moon, to everyone's delight.

Next year R.E.A.C.H San Benito Parks Foundation & BenitoLink will research another perfect, family friendly, time for a Moonlight Walk!

Thank you to all who shared & participated!

Skip the Crowds and Opt Outside

 

REACH San Benito, a nonprofit organization devoted to advocating for parks and trails in San Benito County, is supporting REI’s continuing effort to get you out of long lines in stores and out on the trail on Black Friday, the official launch of the holiday season that falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving each year

Four years ago, REI, the nation’s leading outdoors outfitter, challenged the retail trend by launching #optoutside by closing all of its stores and urging people to drop their shopping bags in exchange for better health and appreciation of the natural resources near them.

REACH is supporting that move with a low-key walk through the San Benito County Historical Park geared toward getting started in birding.  The walk is on easy, graded trails, and will cover about one mile. It gets started at 9 a.m., and participants can expect to end no later than noon.  Participants should wear comfortable shoes, pack water, wear layers and bring along any binoculars they may have available.  Anyone who wishes to bring along lunch is welcome to linger for a chat afterwards.

 

Reach San Benito Adventure Parks Challenge

 

“Un Pequeño Paseo – Explore San Benito”

R.E.A.C.H. lead a walk a month.  Un Pequeno Paseo targeted walks of about an hour in length, more or less.  Some walks were more structured some loosie-goosie.

May is Bike Month and the CalBike team is already blown away by the first-time riders committing to try a new commute, as well as the scores of rides, parties, and other events organized by our local partners across the state.

Join in on the fun of celebrating biking by making this pledge: recruit one new rider to biking this month, even if only for a day.

 MOONLIGHT WALK ON THE DE ANZA TRAIL!!!!

 

Hosted by R.E.A.C.H. San Benito Parks Foundation & BenitoLink
Sat, April 28, 7:30pm

As the Moon appeared, the glow of sunset created a gorgeous effect! See other pictures posted on our FB page and website from happy walkers. It was cold, but wonderful THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME, HELPED AND VOLUNTEERED!

BenitoLink's Leslie David did a great job supporting the effort, and creating a bond between R.E.A.C.H. and BenitoLink, as partners in the parks, trails & paths promotion in San Benito County ! BenitoLink's hosting of Jim Ostdick's articles, "Walking San Benito", has increased possibilities for finding open spaces to recreate! R.E.A.C.H. is grateful for the partnership in this event.

San Juan Bautista Kite Festival

The San Juan Bautista Kite Festival, held on Saturday, April 21, 2018, created a wonderful atmosphere for joyful activity at the San Juan Soccer Field.  The audience was limited due to the half-dozen other activities around town, but the outcome showed great promise for next year, which Jeffery Richardson has committed to.  The pictures taken by Chris Perez show the light-hearted sense of wellbeing generated by this delightful activity, just watching a kite fly.

 

 

Kite building kits were available, and donations were accepted for the benefit of the San Juan Grammar School students going to Science Camp this year.
