The Central Coast State Parks Association is placing educational panels throughout Pismo State Beach, informing visitors of the impacts of trash as a pollutant, as well as its effects on wildlife and the ecosystem. Through education and outreach, park staff and volunteers will reduce the amount of trash pollution that ends up on the beach, in the ocean, and in nearby creeks.
“Our CSPF grant funds will be used for interpretive panels at various restroom locations throughout Pismo State Beach. Most of the funding will go towards panel production and the remainder will go towards our printed trash bags to hand out to visitors within the park. This program helps us reduce trash on our beaches and throughout our parks.”
