     Mission Pine Basin Project Friday, February 27-Sunday March 1.  We will drive all supplies to McKinley Saddle so that pack stock can ride up empty from Cachuma Saddle and then load at the top.  We may do this on Thursday if pack support is available.  We will need to carry quite a bit of water in addition to the tools food and kitchen for this one.

 

      West Hurricane Deck Project from Manzana Schoolhouse Camp Friday March 28-Sunday March 30th.  We will drive all supplies to the camp.  Pack stock can ride out empty.  Pack support is needed to shuttle tools to work site.  Dave and Jane will cook.

 

 

 

Greetings conservation and outdoor enthusiasts:

 

Land conservation is alive and well in San Luis Obispo County!  Although recent efforts to protect Wild Cherry Canyon have stalled, the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo has undertaken several exciting new local conservation projects -- all of which aim to protect our natural areas and provide benefits for residents and visitors alike.

 

One project in particular, the Pismo Preserve, is especially exciting.  If successful, the completion of Pismo Preserve will open up 900 coastal acres to the public, providing spectacular scenic views, great multi-use trails, and wildlife protection.  Local conservation hero Gary Felsman has described the project quite well, and so Iíve forwarded his message, below.  Please take a look!   

 

We donít  have a lot of time Ė all acquisition funds for the proposed Pismo Preserve must be raised by August of THIS year Ė including at least $1.5 million from our community!   Can you help?  Here are three ways:

 

1.      Donate to The Land Conservancy at http://lcslo.org/project/pismopreserve/;

2.      Volunteer to promote the project door-to-door or host a fundraising event in your home (contact LC@lcslo.org ); and

 3.      Share the exciting news with friends, family & colleagues (forward this email).

 

Be a part of something GREAT (and please read the below for more information).

 

With warm regards, Kara
