In February, we invited you to write a love letter to express your appreciation for the 65,000 acres of public open space lands that our community had the foresight to begin protecting 50 years ago. Here's what some of you said you cherished most about having access to nature, including some special memories you’ve made in the Santa Cruz Mountain greenbelt.
