We've protected another 1,600 acres of coastline

The California Coastal National Monument extends along our state’s full 11,000 mile coastline, permanently protecting more than 20,000 rocks, islands, and exposed reefs for 12 miles off the coast. When the monument was created 14 years ago it was envisioned as a way to protect beautiful places along the coast by expanding inland. Then, we worked with our members and allies to fulfill the vision of expanding the California Coastal National Monument to include the Stornetta Public Lands.

The Stornetta Public Lands are the perfect place to hike, explore, and soak in the rugged beauty of Northern California. Located just 100 miles north of San Francisco near Point Arena, Stornetta offers over 1,600 acres of wetlands, trails, and beaches. It is a destination for wildlife lovers and a safe haven for rare animals.

President Obama recently heeded our call to expand California’s network of protected coastline by adding Stornetta to the California Coastal National Monument. He heard from us, and knew it was a priority. We built support along the coast and throughout California by generating media attention and asking tens of thousands of people to add their names to our letter to President Obama.

Together, we protected the Stornetta Public Lands

Together, we're permanently protecting this treasure for future generations to enjoy. Our members and allies made it all possible.
