New Sustainability Program

The City of Pismo Beach has launched their recently developed Pismo Beach Stewardship & Educational Outreach. “Sea Change, Be Change” is the program’s philosophy, and their mission is to strengthen and enhance Stewardship through environmental awareness and education in Pismo Beach by orchestrating arts and project based experiences to “hear, see, and feel” community and scientific knowledge of our ocean and coastal environs and our connections thereto.
