At its December 6, 2012 meeting, the Coastal Conservancy adopted a new strategic plan to guide the agency for 2013 through 2018.
The Strategic Plan provides an overview of our past accomplishments and a delineation of coastal issues by region, and identifies specific goals and objectives the Conservancy will seek to achieve over the next five years. Climate change and limited funding will be critical challenges to continuing coastal conservation work; the plan discusses these challenges and strategies to address them.
The Conservancy is grateful to everyone who participated in the preparation of this Strategic Plan, and to everyone who partners with the Conservancy to accomplish great work along the California Coast and in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together we have done a great deal for California’s people and wildlife, but we still have much left to accomplish!
The Coastal Conservancy is the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the above project, and is seeking public comment on the Humboldt Bay Regional Invasive Spartina Eradication Plan and the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for the project.
