Maria Cecilia Freeman gardens, paints, and teaches in Santa Cruz, California. Her work includes scientific illustration and botanically accurate fine art, often combining the two. She takes a special interest in portraying native plant species. Her work has appeared in solo and juried exhibitions in the United States and Europe. www.mcf-art.com

While nothing resembling a tree could grow in the sand dunes of the Western part of the proposed park, the Eastern end had better soil and rocky outcroppings where the native Coast Live Oaks, still seen near McLaren Lodge, and likely California Buckeye grew.
