OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – California League of Conservation Voters Chief Executive Officer Sarah Rose and League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released the following statement on President Obama designating Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands as part of the California Coastal National Monument. This designation is made possible under the 1906 Antiquities Act, which presidents from both parties have used to set aside significant natural, cultural, and historical resources from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty.

“This designation is a win for the local economy and our environment. President Obama and Secretary Jewell's leadership is a recognition of the broad public support across Mendocino County to permanently protect this slice of California’s majestic coastline and put it on the tourist map. Their leadership, together with Representatives Huffman and Thompson and Senators Boxer and Feinstein, will ensure that our children and grandchildren can enjoy this priceless landscape for generations to come.”
