Pedro Point Headlands Stewardship Program

The Pedro Point Headlands stewardship program is a volunteer initiative to preserve and restore this priceless open space. It is overseen by the Pacifica Land Trust in partnership with the Pedro Point Community Association and made possible by a stewardship grant from the California Coastal Conservancy.

Stewardship Work Days Postponed Until Further Notice

In observing the guidance put in place by public health officials, the Pacifica Land Trust is postponing all volunteer programs at Pedro Point until further notice. We will provide an update in the coming month as the situation regarding COVID-19 evolves. If you do go out to enjoy the Headlands or other Pacifica open spaces, please observe safe distancing (6 feet or more from trail users who are not part of your household). Wishing all good health and looking forward to resuming our work together once it is safe to do so!
What to Bring

Wear close toed shoes, long sleeves and pants and feel free to bring a water bottle and gloves, if you have them. Bring layers and be prepared for warm or cold weather, as the temperature can change quickly as the fog moves in and out. Tools and snacks are provided.

What Can I Do?

Whether you prefer to remove weeds that threaten the native species, widen or maintain trails, collect mature seeds for revegetating the eroded slopes, plant native plants or tend the newly planted seedlings, you can make a real difference for the Headlands and the creatures who live here. There is a lot to be done — and we have fun working as a team to get it done. Collectively we learn and teach each other about the plants, birds and natural history.

Do you need to be strong, fit and young to do this? Absolutely not! People of all ages and levels of ability and experience are welcome! Community service hours are available. Each month we choose several tasks to work on, meeting various abilities and interests. People who like light effort can take photos, record results, collect seeds and water newly planted natives. People who like more vigorous tasks can take up the mattocks, saws, hedge trimmers and other tools and dig in. 

Where To Meet

The meet up time is at the Pedro Point Nursery. We recommend that you arrive at 9:45 am at the Parking Lot on the North End of the Devil’s Slide Trail. If parking is full we will direct folks from the North End Parking Lot to park at the staging area in the headlands nearby. See Map Below for Reference.
