Protecting the Central Coast

The Central Coast is a huge, amazing place, that is one of the few places that combines all the things that make California unique and special: mountains, forests, rivers, deserts, weird geology, and the ocean - not to mention that it preserves the wild places part of the Western character, and practically speaking, the area contains critically important watersheds. (Don't believe me? I'm a terrible photographer and even my unskilled hand could capture some of the place, here and here.) The Central Coast Heritage Protection Act has been reintroduced into Congress (see video below). If you're interested, you can find the California Wilderness Coalition here or on Facebook here.
