Letter from the Trail Center
New Faces on the Board


Kim Cousin and Gael Erickson recently joined the Trail Center Board of Directors and were formally elected by members at the Annual Meeting.

Kim has valuable non-profit experience with the NAACP, the Girl Scouts, and currently works with a women's service sorority in San Jose, as well as experience in fiscal analysis with Wells Fargo. A fairly recent transplant to the Bay Area, Kim was interested in getting to know the Bay Area's public lands and thought the Trail Center would be a great fit.

Gael has lived in the San Francisco Bay area for over 10 years. While living in Los Gatos, she became interested in the parklands, the open space and all the hiking opportunities in the area. After reading an article in the San Jose Mercury News about the open space areas at risk, Gael joined the Greenbelt Alliance outreach and outings team. As a member of the outings team, Gael began coordinating and scheduling hikes and bike rides. Soon after becoming familiar with the parklands and trails, Gael became a hike leader, concentrating on the Peninsula and South Bay area.
      Gael is still an active hike leader and volunteer for Greenbelt Alliance and is on the board of directors for Committee for Green Foothills. After recently moving with her family to El Granada, Gael is enjoying the coast side trails. While not involved in outdoor volunteer and hiking activities, Gael is a Technical Publications Manager for Microsoft in Mountain View.

Kim and Gael, like many of our volunteers, found us through Volunteer Match (www.volunteermatch.org). Thank you, Kim and Gael...and welcome aboard!
