Central Coast

Central CoastThe Central Coast Heritage Act is the product of years of discussion and negotiation, led by Representative Capps, involving business leaders, conservationists, elected officials, ranchers, mountain bikers, and other stakeholders interested in the use and well-being of these iconic lands. Included in the proposed legislation are iconic oak woodlands and chaparral-draped coastal mountains in the Los Padres National Forest and the awe-inspiring Channel Islands.
