Enjoy the Headlands? Please Give to the Pacifica Land Trust
The Pacifica Land Trust is hard at work organizing the Pedro Point Stewardship program to preserve habitat along the newly restored trails. Your gift will help the Pacifica Land Trust steward the open space at Pedro Point Headlands for today and future generations to come. The Pacifica Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization and our taxpayer identification number is 94-3156133. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
