Libro Castro is a big success

Admin | August 1, 2018 |

Libro Castro, a fundraising dinner to support Castro Adobe State Historic Park, was a big success thanks to our sponsors, donors, event attendees, as well as the many volunteers, Friends staff and State Parks staff who help make this event possible!

At the event, we launched The Castro Adobe in the Twentieth Century From Earthquake to Earthquake By Suzanne Paizis New and Updated into the Twenty-First Century by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks. In the second edition, nine new chapters pick up after the Loma Prieta Earthquake to tell the unlikely story of how a grand old adobe, fallen on hard times, is being reborn as the Castro Adobe State Historic Park with help from Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, California State Parks and a community of passionate grass supporters.

The book is available for purchase at our five ParkStore locations, Kelly’s Books and Bookshop Santa Cruz as well as our online store.

Come visit the Castro Adobe State Historic Park during a monthly open house event and see the progress of restoring the adobe and creating a new State Park.
