CALCOAST Restoring California's Coast and Watersheds
Issue: 070717 July 7, 2017




You have received this e-newsletter from the California Coastal Coalition (CalCoast™), a non-profit advocacy group comprised of 35 coastal cities; five counties; SANDAG, BEACON and SCAG; private sector partners and NGO's, committed to protecting and restoring California's coastline through beach sand restoration, increasing the flow of natural sediment, wetlands recovery, improved water quality, watershed management and the reduction of marine debris and plastic pollution. When possible, we try to post articles that are not protected by pay walls.  

Special Note
Please let us know if your organization is looking for an experienced government relations/policy strategist (consultant or employee) in Southern California.
Editor's Notes
After publishing the CalCoast™ WAVE to more than 5,000 free subscribers since 1998, we have launched a subscription model for our e-newsletter. Now, news articles in the CalCoast™ WAVE can be accessed with a low-cost monthly subscription. For private sector subscribers, the subscription rate is only $9.95/month. There are special rates for government subscribers ($7.95/month), and academia/students ($4.95/month).
After you subscribe, you will be given a 14-day free trial. Your new subscription is value-added with a brand new website, more news and information about the California Coastal Commission and other state agencies, as well as federal agencies that have jurisdiction over the coast.  Of course, we will also continue to post news articles and announcements regarding local, state and federal government and politics. With a new administration in charge, you won't want to miss our coverage. It's been an interesting month so far!         
All readers can still access the "Announcements," "Events" and "Employment Opportunities" sections of each CalCoast™ WAVE and on our website at no charge.
