My family has been next to the Pinnacles for over 100 years and have seen it go from a local landmark to a National Park. When I was approached to be a part of a friends group to support the Pinnacles National Monument, I took it as an opportunity to help make a difference with their visitor experiences, education, and numerous special programs. By supporting Pinnacles National Park Foundation you can also help to make a difference.
Kimberly grew up on her family’s ranch near the west side of the Pinnacles. She spent many weekends hiking the Pinnacles and has always had a passion for the outdoors. She currently works as a Park Planner for the County of Santa Clara. Kimberly recently became a board member for the Pinnacles National Park Foundation and with that came the opportunity to show even more support and make a difference with the Pinnacles National Park Foundation and the new Pinnacles National Park.

Mike lives near the west side of the Pinnacles and is often seen hiking the trails or riding his bike to the Park. His interest in the park started as a Boy Scout camping and hiking the area back in the 1960’s. Mike has lived in San Benito and Monterey counties for the last 25 years after being raised in the Bay Area. He has worked in the Planning Departments for both counties, ensuring that land uses are carefully planned and that open space is preserved. Mike helped start the San Benito County Land Trust while living in Hollister and has recently retired as Planning Director for Monterey County. Mike also helped start the Monterey Bay chapter of the Association of Environmental Professionals over twenty years ago and leads a hike for that group in the Pinnacles in spring.
