This interpretative website will enrich the experience of those walking the trails along the headlands as they encounter numbered Learning Stations, explained by a visitor’s cell phone serving as mobile educational units. Users will be able to access text, videos, photographs, maps and graphics that will interpret the diverse communities, ora, fauna, geologic and cultural his- tory of the headlands.

The VPP Project manager Fiona McDonnell, videographer Jon Plutte and board member Stephen Johnson have been busy working on part one of the project funded by a grant from the California Coastal Conservancy. Three learning stations are underway, including the eucalyptus forest, the unique coastal prairie biome and the San Pedro Rock overlook. New content has been building out the program, covering the broad spectrum of plant communities and history of the headlands. Videos have been created with experts in the elds of natural history, geology, conservation and restoration. Pedro Point historical photographs of the recreation on the headlands, Shelter Cove, and the Coastal Railroad are being sought! The Pacifica Historical Society is working with the Land Trust on the Project.
