Project Title:
Central Coast Wild Heritage Campaign 2019 Bill Rollout
California Wildlands Rapid Response Fund, 2019
Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Kern
Project Description:

Rep. Carbajal and Sen. Harris plan to re-introduce the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act on April 6th, 2019, following these junior legislators’ joint introduction to protect 245,665 acres and 159 miles of rivers along California’s Central Coast in October 2017. Building on a generation’s worth of organizing that started with Rep. Lois Capps’ original bill, CalWild needs to extend the contract of our Central Coast Conservation Director to properly complete introduction work while harnessing the current public lands momentum in Congress after the recent passage of the massive John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act.
