Gaviota Coast Conservancy

Dedicated to protecting and preserving the unique and precious rural Gaviota Coast, we're an advocacy group representing one of the California coastline's rare undeveloped coastal wilderness.

Our Mission:

To protect, restore and enhance the unique natural, scenic, agricultural, recreational, educational and cultural resources of the open space lands of the Gaviota Coast for the benefit of current and future generations.  

Our Goals:

  • Promote the conservation of undeveloped land on the Gaviota Coast
  • Develop and implement a long-term resource preservation strategy
  • Respect private property rights and support continued agricultural land use consistent with our conservation principles.
  • Maximize broad-based community support, public awareness, and public involvement
  • Enhance public use, knowledge, and enjoyment of the Gaviota Coast
  • Educate decision-makers to further these goals
  • Initiate and facilitate the creation of alliances and coalitions among organizations that support our goals
