We know that providing public access to our properties is not without risks. In the last year alone, our lands have been subjected to illegal dumping, spray paint, ruined fencing, stolen interpretive signage, cut trees, broken boardwalks and demolished natural rock formations. While it can be discouraging to see the wanton destruction of these beautiful places, the truth is that there are far more "good apples" than "bad apples." We know that most people who visit our properties are respectful of the land and grateful for our conservation efforts.
Next time you go for a hike on one of our trails or visit the beach, we hope you will be a strong advocate for the thoughtful use of the land. Pick up a piece of trash, even if it’s not yours. Speak up when you see someone breaking the rules, or contact our offices to report vandalism or illegal activities. We can't do it without you. Together, we will continue to keep the lands of Mendocino beautiful.
