Book Launch LandScapes: Activism That Shaped Santa Cruz County

Meet the authors of the MAH's newest history journal. LandScapes brings to life the decisions, movements, innovations, and exchanges of political power between 1955 and 2005.

This collection of articles—many of them first-hand accounts—focuses on the story of environmental and historic preservation in Santa Cruz County, California, during the latter 20th century. It captures the drama of activism, innovation, and changes in political power. The county is covered north to south with stories from Watsonville, Santa Cruz, Live Oak, Capitola, Soquel, the San Lorenzo Valley, and the North Coast. Readers will gain a renewed appreciation for why Santa Cruz County is the way it is, and learn how people who cared about this place left a priceless legacy.

Purchase our new publication, and have it signed by the authors.

Made possible in part by Nordic Naturals, Santa Cruz Economic Development, PG&E and MAH Members.
