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 Workday, Saturday September 25, 2021

 

Come to the beautiful Pedro Point Headlands, for a Pacific Land Trust Stewards workday on Saturday September 25, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. We hope to keep this, the fourth Saturday of the month, as our volunteers’ workday for the coming months (excluding December). Some folks may like to come out on November 27 to “work off their Thanksgiving groceries.” Monthly notices are emailed 1 week prior to the workday and posted on the PLT website.

Pacific Land Trust Stewards are pleasantly surprised by how good they feel, both physically, and mentally, after spending the day working with great people in a beautiful setting on such worthwhile land stewardship and trail maintenance projects.

Steve Diers, our Stewardship Coordinator, will lead us as we will be pruning back vegetation on each water bar to where it daylight into the brush and listen to a running commentary by our own biologist Kathy Kellerman on the plants, insects, and animals of the Pedro Point Headlands.

Where To Meet
Access Pedro Point Headlands one of three ways:

1.     by the informal trail (Future Coastal Trail) leaving from Ace Hardware (about 1 mile hike in)

2.     by parking at the Devil’s Slide parking lot north of the tunnels and walking 1/4 mile north up the access trail

3.     through the “green gate” just north of the Devil’s Slide parking lot and driving up a short hill to the meeting area at the main trailhead (see attached map).
