Upcoming Webinar: A Coast for All of Us; Californians’ attitudes about the coast and barriers to coastal access

As economic inequality grows in California, the beach is one space that is truly for everyone.  But are all Californians able to access the coast in the same way?  Join us for a discussion based on recent state-wide research on barriers to getting to the beach.

Tuesday, July 11, 10:00-11:00am

  • What do Californians value about our coast?
  • What is keeping Californians from getting to the beach?
  • How do Californians from different parts of the state access the coast?

Californians have a strong connection to our coast, but there is work we need to do to ensure all Californians can access and enjoy it. Join us to learn about very recent research on Californian’s attitudes about the coast, their visitation patterns, and barriers to visiting the coast. The webinar will feature Jon Christensen from UCLA and Adam Probolsky from Probolsky Research.

Research work includes intercept surveys at Southern California beaches, statewide online and phone surveys, focus groups throughout the state, and research on Instagram use in parks. Adam and Jon will each present their research and we will have time for Q&A. The webinar is meant for people who provide coastal access, protect and manage coastal lands, provide education and interpretation, and for people involved in policy matters related to coastal access and conservation. Join us to learn more about what Californians think about the coast!
