Pedro Point Headlands Acquisition, Restoration and Interpretation
Pedro Point Headlands in now if the the process of being acquired by the San Mateo County Parks Department. San Mateo County has contributed to restoration with Measure A Grant funds to Restore Lands and Build Trails.
Pedro Point Headlands work continues apace. To date, the Pacifica Land Trust has secured and managed grant funds of more than $185,000 that has been used for restoration and trail development of this valuable and awe-inspiring, but badly damaged, site.
We now have a completed draft trails plan, and extensive work has been done to mitigate the erosion caused by years of use by motorcycles and off-trail vehicles. We have made great progress toward erosion control, along with the removal of exotic, invasive non-native plants and replacement by native species. Our goal is to eventually open the area to full public use with well-developed trails. This area now is open only on a limited basis, when nature walks are conducted on the site.
