Property and Easement Acquisition
Our team has identified key parcels contiguous to the organization’s holdings to further our mission of conversation within the Forest.
To further our mission and protect our Central Coast, potential donors may want to consider estate planning, gifting, or tax relief contributions to the mutual benefit of donors and the foundation.
