|Join the Great Coastal Places campaign | by Sarah Ryan
Since the Sierra Club launched the Great Coastal Places campaign to protect California’s
coastline from development and pollution, over 5,000 people from all over California
have gotten involved.
Thousands of activists wrote letters and spoke on behalf of our great coastal
places at Coastal Commission meetings last year. As a result, the Commission twice
denied the building of the proposed seawall at Pleasure Point. They prohibited
off-highway vehicles on Humboldt Bay’s South Spit, an important nesting
ground for the endangered snowy plover. The Coastal Commission continues to move
towards a positive protection program for the Hearst Ranch.
