This project will enhance shoreline access for environmental educational programs and habitat for special-status species at Alpine Pond, located high in the Santa Cruz Mountains within the Skyline Open Space Preserve. The pond provides known or potential habitat for California red-legged frog, western pond turtle, and San Francisco garter snake and is home to a popular environmental education center. The project involves developing strategies for cattail management, invasive species management, and enhanced wildlife viewing opportunities for the general public.
