On Saturday, November 17 at 4 p.m. Cea Higgins will present “Partners in Protection-The California Coastal Trail & Marine Sanctuary” as part of the Lighthouse Lecture Series. Cea, as Executive Director of Coastwalk/California Coastal Trail Association, is uniquely qualified to teach the audience about the history, intent, and future of the California Coastal Trail-when completed the trail will run 1200 unbroken miles from Oregon to Mexico and provide public access to the coastline and a spectacular venue for outdoor recreation & coastal preservation. Coastwalk has lead hikes on the California Coastal Trail for 35 years and works to inspire, educate, and increase the community of coastal advocates for both coastal protection and access. Hear the stories of the first thru-hike which brought attention to the need to protect the Coast from over-development and resulted in the Passage of Proposition 20 and the Coastal Act. Learn about the intrepid souls who have walked the trail such as the senior “Coastwalkers” who have spent 2 decades to complete the journey or the first woman to run the trail solo in under 44 days. Learn why the Trail and Sanctuary provide a “sandwich” of coastal preservation and how you can best advocate for their preservation.
