Document Description
Notice of exemption for Coastal Conservancy Approval of Grant Funding: Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains (RCD) Malibu Lagoon Together Program combines a science-based outdoor education experience with an afternoon at the beach. By creating a safe family-oriented introduction to the coast, the program aims to increase the likelihood of families of color spending time at the coast and sending their students to outdoor education experiences. The program will serve 800 students and their families from throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. The program will focus on bringing underserved Black, brown, and Indigenous students, and their families to the coast together. For the morning session, student and family groups will be broken into teams to participate at environmental education stations focused on bird watching, local fish of the Malibu Lagoon, watershed modeling and water quality, and plant identification. After this morning of environmental education, participants will eat lunch on the beach and families will be invited to stay and enjoy the rest of their coastal experience in a way that best fits their family.
