Group Description

KQED's QUEST is a new multimedia series about the people behind San Francisco Bay Area science and environmental issues and how their work is changing the way we live.

Share and discuss your photos of Alum Rock Park with us, and we will link to them in one of our web-based science hikes under the " Visitor's Photos" tab:

See the Alum Rock Park Exploration on the KQED QUEST website.

FYI - it may take a few minutes for your photos to be linked from KQED's QUEST website. Thanks for contributing!

About Alum Rock Park

Just a few minutes outside of San Jose, you’ll find a place to explore 100 million years of history. Alum Rock Park, created in 1872 as the first municipal park in California, offers both ancient rocks and new geologic changes (and lots of nice trails and wildlife, too). Despite its longevity and proximity to a populous urban area, it remains one of the less-visited jewels in the Bay Area’s crown.
