Everybody welcome @savemountdiablo to #OSCQuizFridays! Come join us on Twitter for a long lunch this Friday from 11:30a-1:30p, but start brushing up now on your WWII history so you’re ready.
We’re a big fan of #parkpuns, and an even bigger fan of all the awesome work our #BayArea members like the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County are doing to protect the environment.
