The Pacifica Land Trust invites you to come play in nature, kick off the holidays and enjoy the 4th Annual Charlie Brown Tree and Wreath Making event on Saturday, December 7th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.  And help them preserve and protect open space by making donations to the Pacifica Land Trust

Meet in Pedro Point’s “Castle Kitchen” parking lot (across from Ace Hardware) where we’ll gather and carpool you up to the Pedro Point Headlands.   Wear long sleeve shirts, pants and sturdy boots to walk in the beautiful, rugged terrain that you’ll be navigating.  Remember to help even more and bring a little cash for the cause... 

Because of all your help since 2010, this year our invasive Charlie Brown trees on the Pedro Point Headlands are either too little, too big or too remotely located for most of us.  If you find one that is just right, you are welcome to bring it home. But we thought you might have even more fun planting a “tree” (ahem... native plant or grass grown from Pedro Point Headlands seed) that will help us restore the headlands even more. 

So come, escape to nature, hike this coastal gem, plant a holiday “tree/native plant” and make your own wreath, swag, garland, or natural décor all while supporting the Pacifica Land Trust.

The Pacifica Land Trust and the Pedro Point Community Association will have volunteers on hand to help you find your way to stunning views of the jagged rock outcroppings, the newly opened tunnel, Devils Slide, and the incredible Pedro Rock.  They will help you plant a native species on a bluff above the ocean. 

Volunteers will also have pine cones, plenty of greens, a collection of natural materials for your nature inspired Charlie Brown wreath/swag/candle pieces/holiday decor creations and a helping hand should you want it.  We will have some wreath forms on hand but please bring your own to make sure you have one.  To add to your creation, bring your favorite ribbons, ornaments, and beads.   Think candlesticks, table centerpieces, yule logs, mantle decorations.   And, if you want, hunt for just the perfect addition to your creation on your Pedro Point Headlands hike!

This year we invite you to take a chance by buying a "mystery gift" from a pool of "white elephant packages" donated to the cause. 

Go ahead, sing while you play with the Pedro Point Carolers!

Come hike the headlands, see the recovering coastal scrublands, and pitch in once more to preserve and enhance the integrity of this rich, coastal ecosystem and make yet another family holiday memory by planting a native plant or making a wreath and holiday decorations. 

Bring the whole family or a group of friends or make new friends up on the Headlands!  While you enjoy the holiday carolers, hot cider and refreshments, Charlie Brown trees, white elephant surprise gifts, hiking, planting, singing, and decoration making, consider supporting the Pacifica Land Trust.  Donations to the Pacifica Land Trust are truly appreciated and will assist them to preserve, protect and restore this magnificent headlands for ours and future generations.

Since 2009 the Pedro Point Headlands Stewardship project has been directed by the Pacifica Land Trust, funded by the CA Coastal Conservancy, and supported by the Pedro Point Community Association.  To learn more about on-going stewardship and restoration efforts, go to www.pedropointheadlands.org
