California Coastal National Monument continues Its 10th anniversary celebration at Coastal Discovery Fair
For the fifth year in a row, BLM’s California Coastal National Monument hosted a booth at the Coastal Discovery Fair, held last Saturday at Randolph Hearst Memorial State Beach in San Simeon. More than a dozen agencies and organizations participated in this day-long event and each had activities for kids. The California Coastal National Monument used this event to continue the year-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Monument and the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS).

At the BLM booth, dozens of kids colored, cut and assembled pelican headbands, made bookmarks, and measured tidepool animal replicas, while their parents or grandparents discussed the California Coastal National Monument and the NLCS with Monument Manager Rick Hanks and the BLM's Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office interpretative specialist Tracy Albrecht.
The fair is the annual celebration for the Coastal Discovery Center that is managed by the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary in cooperation with California State Parks, both of whom are California Coastal National Monument partners. The Coastal Discovery Center serves as the Monument’s visitor contact station for its Piedras Blancas-San Simeon Gateway initiative.
