The Santa Cruz Mountains Bioregional Council is a nonprofit public benefit corporation comprising biologists and other natural resource professionals whose objective is to conserve native plant and animal biodiversity in the Santa Cruz Mountains Bioregion.
The Santa Cruz Mountains Bioregion covers an area of 3,592 square kilometers (1387 square miles) on the central coast, bounded on the north by the Golden Gate, on the East by San Francisco Bay and the Santa Clara Valley, on the south by the Pajaro River and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. It includes all of San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties and the western part of Santa Clara County.
After several years of trial and error experimentation, we finally have an updated website for the Santa Cruz Mountains Bioregional Council. You will find an updated article explaining “What’s a Bioregion.” Watch for posting some of the other information about sub-regions and watershed of the Santa Cruz Mountains. You can check out the new site here.
