"California's Gold" logoIn this episode, Huell Howser visits the California Coastal National Monument which runs the entire length of the California coast (1,100 miles) between Oregon and Mexico and encompasses thousands of BLM-administered islands, rocks, exposed reefs, and pinnacles above mean high tide. Cooperatively managed with other federal, state, local government, universities, and private interests, the primary purpose of the Monument is to protect important biological and geological values. The islands, rocks, reefs, and pinnacles provide forage and breeding grounds for significant populations of birds and sea mammals.
