A Resource Guide to Phil Hardberger Park and the Oak Loop Trail
Written by Park Naturalists, Alamo Area Master Naturalists, Native Plant Society, Sierra Club, and other local experts.
The Resource Guide is a useful tool for identifying the plants and wildlife seen in Hardberger Park. It also tells the history of the land and how it has been transformed from a dairy farm to an urban wilderness.
The production of the guide is a joint project of the Alamo Area Master Naturalist Leadership Team for the Fourth Saturday Events in the park, the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, and the Alamo Group of the Sierra Club.
The link below will take you to the Alamo Area Master Naturalist site. There you will find a Table of Contents with more than 25 articles, heavily illustrated, covering the plants and wildlife of Phil Hardberger Park.
The content, both text and pictures, illustrate what you are likely to see and why as you enjoy our Urban Wild. But the articles go beyond that to explain the Archaeology, Geology, History, and Ecology of this very special place.
