The Pedro Point Headlands stewardship program and this event are brought to you by the Pacifica Land Trust and supported by the Pedro Point Community Association. The work on the 250 acres of wildlife habitat is being transformed from a hodgepodge of unsustainable old motorcycle trails to safer and erosion-controlling paths with generous grants from the County of San Mateo’s Measure A funds and the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) Division Program, along with the partnerships with the City of Pacifica and the California Coastal Conservancy.
To help preserve, protect and restore open space for us and future generations consider supporting the Pacifica Land Trust who has been protecting Pacifica Open space since facilitating the purchase of the Headlands in 1995. To learn more about our ongoing stewardship and restoration efforts, go to www.pedropointheadlands.org or call us at 650-355-1668.
