Document Description
Notice of exemption for Coastal Conservancy Approval of Grant Funding: Community Nature Connection (CNC)’s Transit to Trails Coastal Access Program will reduce economic, physical, operational, and societal barriers to accessing the coast by offering naturalist-led coastal trips that include transportation, healthy snacks, and parking fees provided at no cost to participants. CNC will work with six community-based organizations in underserved communities within Los Angeles County to provide these coastal access trips to approximately 1,000 participants, including those with disabilities. Upon arriving at coastal destinations, CNC will offer participants interpretive environmental education programs that will foster ongoing coastal stewardship programs or participants can enjoy the beach as they desire. The program will provide transportation to the coast and coastal areas, increase knowledge in ocean and environmental literacy among participants and provide families and participants information on how coastal areas can be accessed by public transportation.
