The Coastal Conservancy is a State agency established in 1976 to protect and improve natural lands and waterways, help people access and enjoy the outdoors, and sustain local economies along the length of California’s coast and around San Francisco Bay.

Our Mission
Our vision is of a beautiful, restored, and accessible coast for current and future Californians. We act with others to protect and restore, and increase public access to, California’s coast, ocean, coastal watersheds and the San Francisco Bay Area.


About: The Coastal Conservancy protects coastal resources and helps the public to enjoy them. This page has information about us, including the Coastal Conservancy Board, Strategic Plan, and Jobs.


Projects and Programs: The Coastal Conservancy is actively supporting hundreds of projects along the coast and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Learn more about our projects and programs.
