We support the expansion and protection of the Pt. Arena-Stornetta Public Lands, called one of the most significant parts of the Mendocino coastline.
The area is home to several endangered species, important coastal plants and unique geological features.
Permanently protecting the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands as a part of the National Conservation Lands would ensure the lands are preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Thanks to Congressman Thompson, legislation to protect these lands as a National Monument was introduced in Congress. Our community is speaking out in favor of protecting this area and we ask that the President use his authority to protect these lands as a National Monument if Congress does not.
Congress also has the opportunity to fund the President's FY 2013 budget request for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. This will allow the Bureau of Land Management to acquire and protect an additional 409 acres within the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands for public access and enjoyment.
We urge you to join us in supporting these important conservation efforts. Tell the President and Congress to take action, before time runs out
