It is quite the battle!” said Steen Trump, Trinidad Coastal Land Trust Board Trustee.  For more details, call Steen at (707) 834-4499.

Pilot Point is the Land Trust’s largest landholding located at the north end of Moonstone Beach with beautiful Two Creek running through it. Pilot Point is a property dedicated to the conservation of native flora and fauna and is a research area for Humboldt State University. Its southern slopes are home to the increasingly rare mountain beaver, a large (and some think cute) nocturnal rodent unrelated to the true beaver.
