Coastal Dune Community Stewardship Project Year 1 Report: SCC 15-110 Explore the Coast Grant

This report provides a status update for activities that occurred during Year 1 (21 June 2016 to 30 June 2017) as part of the California State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) Grant #15-110: Coastal Dune Community Stewardship Project.

Over the course of Year 1, 585 volunteers, over half of whom were students, participated in 13 educational restoration events at the LAX Dunes Preserve (LAX Dunes). TBF exceeded all Year 1 expected quantitative outcomes of number of volunteers, hours contributed by volunteers, and number of bags of nonnative vegetation removed. Additionally, TBF was able to conduct broad outreach, attracting inland and underserved communities to the coastal project site.
