Our Southern California coastline faces many challenges. 

The Sierra Club works to help preserve the coast from poorly planned residential and industrial development, oil drilling and pollution that damages sensitive and irreplaceable habitat. Rapid growth in development threatens our last remaining open wildlife spaces and our resources within them. The Angeles Chapter advocates for preservation of these areas to ensure that sensitive habitat is conserved, restored and left for future generations to enjoy. What makes Coastal Preservation Campaigns different from other Open Space campaigns is that California has a dedicated law called the Coastal Act and a dedicated agency called the Coastal Commission; hence our chapter's work on coastal issues is aligned with other Sierra Club chapters in California who also coordinate with this agency.
