(Land Trust of Santa Cruz)
Formally known as CEMEX Redwoods, the 8,500 acres is the largest private land parcel in Santa Cruz County. It was owned by the cement company at Davenport. (The last owner was CEMEX.)
Since 2011 the land has been owned and managed by the Living Landscape Initiative, a consortium of local and national conservation groups, including the Peninsula Open Space Trust, the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, The Nature Conservancy, the Save the Redwoods League and the Sempervirens Fund. The $30 million purchase from Cemex was supported in part by the Packard and Moore Foundations. In 2014 $10 million came from the State of California Wildlife Conservation Board to help permanently protect San Vicente Redwoods.
The new name of the land is from the San Vicente Creek which flows through it.
