Would you enjoy cutting your own holiday tree or making your own wreath or garland while contributing to the Pacifica Land Trust’s efforts to restore the Pedro Point Headlands to its full glory?
On Sunday, Nov. 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers from the Pacifica Land Trust and the Pedro Point Community Association will be hosting their third “Charlie Brown Tree” stewardship program. The group has been carefully removing Monterey Pines from coastal scrublands to preserve the integrity of this rich, wildflower-strewn coastal ecosystem while leaving intact all of the larger, clustered pine forests.
Here's your chance to select your special holiday tree and/or make a swag for your front door while visiting and preserving the Pedro Point Headlands. Your donations go a long way toward helping restore and preserve this magnificent coastal open space.
Meet in Pedro Point’s “Castle Kitchen” parking lot (across from Ace Hardware) to carpool to the Headlands. Wear long sleeve shirts, pants and sturdy boots to walk in the beautiful, rugged terrain that you’ll be navigating.
The trees are spread out and not as easily accessible as past years but they can be found. Many candidate trees are on the South and Middle ridges — or even near the coastal bluffs—so plan to carry your own trees back to the staging area. Organizers will haul your Charlie Brown tree and carpool you back to the registration site.
This year there's a Charlie Brown wreath-making station, too. Feel free to bring any ribbons, bows, holiday ornaments, wreath forms you might wish to use on your wreath or garland to share with others. There will be supplies and plenty of greens.
Donations to the Pacific Land Trust are truly appreciated and will assist to preserve, protect and restore the magnificent headlands for future generations.
