After 20 years of leasing an office from Quail Lodge on Rancho San Carlos Road, the Conservancy has moved to the Rancho Cañada property acquired in 2018 while the Board of Trustees continues its search for a permanent home on The Santa Lucia Preserve. The new address is 5240 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel, California 93923.
As the Conservancy has grown to 12 full-time employees with an additional 10 seasonal employees and interns, our staff and operations have outgrown the space of the Quail Lodge office and we look forward to the accommodations of the new office space.
In particular, it offers a secure location for equipment and vehicles, conference rooms for private and staff meetings, temporary lodging for summer interns and visiting researchers, and 6,500 square feet of storage space for field equipment and supplies.
Additionally, this new space will allow for an expansion of our youth environmental education program including watershed and floodplain restoration programming right along the Carmel River.
While the move was necessitated by the need for additional space, the Conservancy looks forward to finding a permanent home on The Preserve as well.
