Our April 30 Program, “The History of the Headlands,” was a wonderful evening of historic photos, reminiscences, stories of how it came to be a preserve and how it is used now. Rene Cortez, far right, served as emcee. Pictured with him from left are Robert Wilson, DPHS member and historian; Sean Vogt, Nature Interpretive Center; Lee Ann Carranza, Center for Natural Lands Management, and Mel Pierce, DPHS member.  Each person briefly discussed a period of Headlands history including Native American residents, the settlers and trade areas, WWII involvement, land preservation and overall changes to the area leading up to the installment of the Nature Interpretive Center.  Everyone retired to our museum for a festive reception following the program.
