Butano State Park
1500 Cloverdale Rd
Pescadero, CA 94060 United States
Butano State Park is located in San Mateo County and features a quiet canyon filled with towering second and third growth-redwood trees, babbling creeks, and more. While 85% of the park was within the fire perimeter of the CZU Lightning Complex, State Parks environmental scientists describe the event as a “healthy burn” that will improve forest health.
Parts of the park have reopened, during this event hosted by the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, we’ll explore the impacts of the fire alongside Amy Patten of the California Native Plant Society, while collecting data using iNaturalist to support the CZU Lightning Complex and Community Science Project.
