Our coast is a rugged harmony of endless combinations. Stiff sea winds can polish the skies to a blue brilliance unlike any other. Along the shore, pelicans, gulls and sandpipers vie for the oceans harvest. Inland valleys support steelhead streams. Silken fingers of fog reach down and enshroud the land below. Dramatic coastal ridges thrust upward where hawks and falcons circle.

This is Pacifica.

South from San Francisco along the coast, travellers are routinely stunned by breathtaking views and dramatic sunsets that sweep the coast from Highway One. From the northern ocean bluffs, south to Pedro Point, Pacifica encompasses not only 40,000 people but several unique micro-climates and ecosystems with rare and threatened plant and animal species including the Montara Mountain manzanita, the San Francisco garter snake, and the Mission Blue butterfly.

  • Photo album from the January 2nd workday on Pedro Point Headlands. Boy Scout Troop 256 (21 volunteers) did an awesome job of planting 432 grasses, 50 CA Asters and 144 yarrows on the Eastern Slope of the Middle Ridge. They worked hard and had a blast, felt a great sense of accomplishment, and really loved starting the New Year with this project.
