Spotlight Stewardship

The Spotlight Stewardship program is designed to bring community leaders out on to the land to learn about land stewardship issues. We currently have a fantastic cohort of seventeen community leaders participating in the four-day program. On day one we visited Mindego Ranch, Midpeninsula Regional open Space Trust's property in Redwood City. On day two we visited the Pescadero watershed and looked at a stream restoration project done by the San Mateo Resource Conservation District. On day three we visited Land Trust of Santa Cruz County's Byrne Forest, as well as the privately-owned Estrada Ranch in Corralitos. Our last and final day we'll visit San Vicente Redwoods near Davenport.
