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 July 24, 2021


At long last, we are able to resume our 17th year of maintaining the beautiful Pedro Point Headlands!  The Pacifica Land Trust has scheduled a workday at the Headlands for Saturday July 24, from 10 to 1pm.

Come meet Steve Diers, our new Stewardship Coordinator.  A retired EMBUD Ranger & Naturalist, he has decades of experience with volunteers and land management (and the tales to go with them!)

We’ll pull invasive plants and listen to a running commentary by our own biologist Kathy Kellerman on the plants, insects, and animals of the Headlands.

If you are not vaccinated for COVID, you must wear a mask. And everyone practice social distancing.
What to Bring

Please wear comfortable clothes (long sleeves and long pants) and be prepared for warm (hopefully) or cold weather, so bring some extra layers. Wear sturdy closed toe shoes or hiking boots. A hat , sunscreen, and water are recommended. Tools, gloves, extra water and snacks will be 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
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).
