Management

In 2002 two public meetings were held in Cambria, California to discuss the public’s concerns and wishes for Piedras Blancas Light Station. As a result of those meetings, the following issues were identified and incorporated into a management “framework” for the site:
- Restore the Piedras Blancas Light Station to its period of greatest
  historic significance (1875 to 1940).
- Manage limited public access for tours and educational purposes.
- Continue (site dependent) near shore and marine research.
 
Mission statement of the Piedras Blancas Light Station: Manage and restore the Piedras Blancas Light Station to a period in its history when the site played a significant role in the protection of central California maritime activities. In addition, preserve and protect the natural, historical, and cultural resources of the site while providing opportunities for compatible scientific, cultural, social, and interpretive activities for the benefit of present and future generations.
