Join Peninsula Open Space Trust for a community hike at San Vicente Redwoods! This will be a moderate hike of 3.5 miles on fairly level trails with little elevation gain. Guests will be led by a POST ambassador, who will share about the human and natural history of this important working forest, the history of its protection as well as the impacts of the 2020 CZU fire on forest health and wildlife habitat.
About San Vicente Redwoods (SVR) – SVR is a 8,852-acre property in the Santa Cruz Mountains protected in 2011 and co-managed by four nonprofit conservation partners: POST, Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, Sempervirens Fund, and Save the Redwoods League. It is both a model of conservation and a living laboratory for ecosystem restoration, wildfire resilience work, wildlife protection and public access. If you would like to learn more about the Property and POST’s work there along with our partners, this blog provides a wealth of information and links.
