The San Mateo County (California) Board of Supervisors approved a $350,000 expenditure in Measure A funds to support the Pacifica Land Trust’s restoration project of the Pedro Point Headlands.
The money will go toward building trails, planting native species and erosion control for the 247-acre promontory located between Montara and Pacifica along the coast.
The land is owned by the California Coastal Conservancy and the city of Pacifica but both agencies intend to transfer the Pedro Point Headlands parcels to the county at no cost later this year.
The county’s effort in the Pacifica Land Trust’s restoration project will improve habitat, water quality and restore recreational opportunities, Finley said.
It has been working to restore Pedro Point for 25 years, said Dinah Verby, with the Pacifica Land Trust.[Photo credit: www.pedropointheadlands.org]
