Committed to Preservation - Yesterday, today & tomorrow
Laguna Canyon Foundation

In 2000 the California voters passed Proposition 12, the Safe Neighborhood Parks, Clean Water, and Coastal Protection Bond Act. It included a $12.5 million designated line item to support the parks and preserves in the south coast wilderness in coastal Orange County and was allocated to the California Coastal Conservancy. These California Coastal Conservancy grants were given to help educate the public, acquire more parkland and provide coastal access.

The Coastal Conservancy distributed grants to fund the following:
