California Coastal National Monument

California Coastal National Monument
Area 607 acres (246 ha)[1]
Created January 11, 2000 (2000-01-11)[2]
Governing body Bureau of Land Management

The California Coastal National Monument is located along the entire coastline of the U.S. state of California. Created by Presidential proclamation on January 11, 2000 and expanded on March 11, 2014, the monument, which encompasses 2,272 acres (919 ha), is managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior. The creation of the monument ensures the protection of all islets, reefs and rock outcroppings from the coast of California to a distance of 12 nautical miles (22 km) along the entire 840-mile (1,350 km) long California coastline. Conservative estimates are for at least 20,000 such outcroppings.[3]

On March 11, 2014, President Barack Obama used an executive proclamation to add the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands to the monument.[4] The proclamation added 1,665 acres (674 ha) to the existing monument, comprising the estuary of the Garcia River.[5]
