Document Description
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD) is developing a Preserve Plan for the Bear Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve. The Preserve is currently open to public access by permit only. The Plan would provide additional public access and trail opportunities, additional vehicle access and parking, new restroom facilities, and other additional public use facilities, including potential re-use of existing structures at the former Alma College site and improvements to (and development of new) equestrian facilities at the existing Bear Creek Stables. Special events are also being considered. The Plan would include improvement to native habitat, maintenance of roads, and providing safe road crossings. Resource management efforts under the Plan would focus on Sudden Oak Death, invasive plants, and protecting bat habitat.
