Sempervirens Fund saves more redwoods

December 2010

The Sempervirens Fund is celebrating two new land acquisitions in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The first, a 33-acre parcel surrounded on three sides by Castle Rock State Park, eventually will become the new entrance to the park. Planned are better access to the park, bathrooms, campgrounds, and a visitor center.

In September Sempervirens closed escrow on the 35-acre Lagomarsino property in San Mateo County. There are over 60 old growth redwoods and over 2000 redwoods and Douglas firs on the property. The Midpeninsula Open Space District has expressed interest in ultimately acquiring the land.
