Pedro Point Headlands

The Property

The effort to preserve the Pedro Point Headlands began in 1989 when the California Coastal Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land and the Peninsula Open Space Trust provided assistance to Pacifica residents interested in establishing a local land conservation organization which became the Pacific Land Trust.

At that time, a section of the Pedro Point property was threatened by the potential development of an additional subdivision 217 units.

In August of 1992, the California Coastal Conservancy granted the City of Pacifica funds for acquisition of a part of the property.

In 1995 the Conservancy brought the remaining land with matching federal funds and awards grants to the Pacifica Land Trust to help manage and restore the property.

The site was heavily impacted by prior land use which required extensive restoration and began a long process of land stabilization and exotic species control.
