In the Spotlight

2015 is a great year to get out and Discover the Coast.

California is known for many things, especially the incredible coastal views.  Along this coast there are over 20,000 rocks, islands, pinnacles, and exposed reefs which make the California Coastal National Monument.

Also along the coast is the amazing Fort Ord National Monument which contains rare coastal biological communities that are an integral part of the larger coastal ecosystem.

Visitors to the area should take some additional time to explore and admire these two National Monuments but don't forget to experience the wonderful exhibits at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, a BLM Monument Gateway partner.
