Contact Central Coast Members of Congress
Dear Member of Congress:
The Central Coast includes some of the most diverse habitats and ecosystems found anywhere in North America. Los Padres National Forest, California’s second largest national forest, rises from the Pacific Ocean to over 8,800 feet in elevation and provides habitat for 468 species of wildlife, including the endangered California condor and the southern steelhead. The Carrizo Plain National Monument is home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal life, including several threatened and endangered species, the majestic Tule elk, and Pronghorn antelope. It is also the site of irreplaceable Native American cultural areas
As you know, these landscapes are an important part of America’s natural heritage, contribute to the regional economy, and are a shared resource that the public enjoys through outdoor recreation activities.
Thank you for committing to safeguard California’s Central Coast through the designation of wilderness and wild rivers.
