Santa Cruz Mountains Stewardship Network

  • CA , United States
The Santa Cruz Mountains Stewardship Network was formed in 2015 as an inclusive, region-wide collaboration of 19 large landowners in the Santa Cruz Mountain region that extends from south of San Francisco to the Salinas Valley, east to the Santa Clara Valley, and west to the Pacific Ocean. The Network includes individuals and organizations representing local, state, and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, research institutions, private landowners, and community and tribal groups, nearly all of whom either own or are responsible for managing both protected and working lands throughout the region. The network is committed to working together to balance both ecological and economic goals to foster a resilient, vibrant regional ecosystem where human and natural systems thrive for generations to come.
