Big Basin Redwood Park Expands 534 Acres Thanks to Hewlett-Packard

Hewlett-Packard has agreed to sell "Little Basin", their 534 acre property adjascent to the Big Basin Redwoods Park, to two non-profit land trusts, the Peninsula Open Space Trust and the Sempervirens Fund. These trusts will in turn lobby to have this property made a part of the Big Basin Redwoods Park. You can read the full story here at the San Jose Mercury News.

It's incredible what land trusts can do to help preserve local open space (you can read some research I did here), and much in thanks to the generosity of the folks at HP, the success continues. I can't wait to try out the new trails!

Here's an audio slideshow about the purchase, courtesy of the San Jose Mercury News.

  1. that's great! Land Trusts are a good thing. I'm probably going to donate profits from futures races I do to the "Trust for Public Land". They have and Orange County program even.
