Stephen Slade – Executive Director  •  (831) 429-6116 ext. 303

Stephen moved to Santa Cruz in 1980, moved away a couple times, and kept returning – finally settling in 1998. He joined the Land Trust in 2006 as Development and Communications Director, became Deputy Director in 2009, and Executive Director in 2016. He has more than 40 years non-profit experience in fundraising, communications, and management – and a deep passion for the lands that make Santa Cruz special. He is a life-long hiker and counts Waddell Creek, Fall Creek, almost any beach, and many trails at Point Reyes among his favorites.
