Located in Pacifica, California, the Pedro Point Headlands are the western terminus of Montara Mountain, a four-mile-long ridge that ends at Pedro Point. Pedro Point itself is a spectacular, photogenic rock jutting into the ocean, its strata upended. The near vertical cliffs and jagged knife-like edge are beloved by seabirds. The headlands above it host diverse plant communities of coastal scrub, reedgrass and Monterey Pine woodlands.
The Pedro Point Headlands stewardship project is a volunteer initiative to protect these priceless coastal resources. The Pedro Point Headlands have been abused by years of motorcycle use, damaging the native plant communities while providing habitat for aggressive invasive plants. Your help is needed to restore these headlands to a more natural state and to protect them for future generations.
