Santa Cruz Rail Trail Presentation

The Land Trust of Santa Cruz County is hosting a presentation titled “All About Your Local Rail Trail” tonight, December 8th from 7-8 pm . Featured speakers will be: Stephen Slade, Deputy Director of the Land Trust; Cory Caletti, RTC’s Sr Planner and Rail Trail Program Manager; and Amelia Conlen, Executive Director of Bike Santa Cruz County. It will be held in the Grand Ballroom at the Hotel Paradox on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz. Registration is required through the Land Trust’s website as the venue is expected to fill up.

The Land Trust has committed over $3.6M for two rail trail projects and is currently in the midst of a campaign to raise $20M for a number of projects including the rail trail, the Hwy 17 Wildlife Crossing, Watsonville Slough Farm and off-road trails at San Vicente Redwoods. In unprecedented news is that two anonymous donors who will double every gift of any size through the end of January with no limit.
