Castro Adobe work honored by the Santa Cruz County History Forum

The Santa Cruz County History Forum recently honored Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks for its work restoring the Castro Adobe. The honor was bestowed during the History Forum's online Gala on Nov. 18, 2020.
According to History Forum Past President Traci Bliss, the organization has given only three awards over the last decade for outstanding and sustained work in preserving our county's history. The $500 award honors a non-profit organization that has made a truly exceptional contribution to restoration and/or preservation. Past winners have been The Elkhorn Slough Foundation and the Evergreen Committee at the Museum of Art and History (MAH). 
Castro Adobe Advisory Committee Chair Charlene Duval and Friends Historic Preservation Project Manager Jessica Kusz presented a project update to Gala attendees.
