The Adventure Continues… California Coastal Monument

IMG_3496

California’s coastline is certainly beautiful — but I wasn’t aware that it also encompasses a unique and diverse national park formed in 2000. There are a lot of amazing rock formations up and down the coast, and each one is special in its own way. In this episode of California’s Golden Parks, Huell learns about the California Coastal Monument.

In this adventure, Huell visits the California Coastal National Monument which runs the entire length of the California coast (1,100 miles) between Oregon and Mexico, extends 12 nautical miles from the shoreline, and encompasses thousands of BLM administered islands, rocks, exposed reefs, and pinnacles above mean high tide. Cooperatively managed with other federal, state, local government, universities, and private interests, the primary purpose of the Monument is to protect important biological and geological values. The islands, rocks, reefs, and pinnacles provide forage and breeding grounds for significant populations of birds and sea mammals.
