Obama to Preserve California Federal Lands

Saturday, 08 Mar 2014 08:19 PM

A White House official says President Barack Obama will expand the California Coastal National Monument to include the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands.

The area represents about 1,665 acres of federal land on California's Mendocino County coast, just north of Point Arena. The action, expected Tuesday, will expand the monument to include coastal bluff and shelves, tide pools, onshore sand dunes, coastal prairies, riverbanks, and the mouth and estuary of the Garcia River.

Then-President Bill Clinton created the California Coastal Monument in 2000. Obama pledged this year to use his presidential authority to preserve more federal lands for future generations. The White House official was not authorized to discuss the matter by name before the formal announcement.

The Washington Post first reported on Obama's plans.
