Coastal Conservancy Awards $12.5 Million for Coastal Restoration and Protection Projects
SACRAMENTO – Today, the Board of the State Coastal Conservancy awarded over $12.5 million in grants for the protection and restoration of California’s coast and the San Francisco Bay. Grantees included public agencies, cities and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations whose purposes are consistent with the Conservancy’s enabling legislation.
Among the grants awarded were $3.9 million to the City of Goleta for enhancement of monarch butterfly and other wildlife habitat at Ellwood Mesa in Santa Barbara County and $4.7 million for the planning, management, treatment, monitoring, and restoration activities of the San Francisco Estuary Invasive Spartina Project in the San Francisco Bay.
“The grants awarded today show the breadth of the Conservancy’s work.” said Sam Schuchat, Executive Officer of the Coastal Conservancy. “From small projects to make local treasures like Pie Ranch accessible to more Californians to the implementation of large-scale invasive plant removal, the Conservancy aims to get the maximum benefit out of every dollar we allocate for the people, the wildlife and the ecosystems of this state.”
