History

The majority of the current Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve was used for timber harvest from the mid-to-late 1800s.  Once the timber industry was replaced by a private estate, a number of orchards and vineyards were established throughout the property.  However, Timber harvest continued on some properties well into the mid 1900s.  In 1934, the majority of what is now Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve was sold to the Jesuits, who established a theological college on the grounds of the Tevis Estate.  

The College closed in 1969, and the property was slated to be developed into a golf course and country club, until POST and the District purchased the property in 1999 to save it from development.
