The idea of turning 5,800-plus acres on Santa Cruz’s North Coast into a national monument has captured the imagination of many locals from the moment the school-kids sang “This Land Is Your Land” during the monument campaign kickoff at Kaiser Permanente Arena in February. But increased accessibility and the crowds it will inevitably draw is a serious concern to the people who will be most impacted by the national monument designation—members of the communities of Davenport and Bonny Doon.
