The cultural reserve is open

The newly restored treasure at Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve is open to the public from October 15. Jesuit Theological Seminary in California.

The site was recently rehabilitated by the Mediterranean Regional Open Space District. This process involved stabilizing and sealing old structures, removing non-historic structures that were no longer safe and growing native plants. All of this was paid for with the use of voter-approved AA Action Bond funds, as well as a county grant.
