Land Trust Santa Cruz, speaking about their Wildlife Tunnel Under Highway 17:

What THEY Protect

The Land Trust of Santa Cruz County is dedicated to protecting and caring for the lands we love.  We protect both working lands, like farms and timberland, and natural lands with high conservation value – thus protecting water supplies, wildlife habitats, and open space.

In 2011 the Land Trust completed a Conservation Blueprint for Santa Cruz County. The Blueprint calls for the protection of 50,000 priority acres in our county and will guide the Land Trust’s work through 2035. To date, the Land Trust has protected 14,000 acres by working with willing landowners and land conservation partners.
