Local non-profit looking to secure remaining funds for Pismo Preserve

Posted at 2:41 PM, Jun 18, 2019

The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County is approaching the homestretch of the construction of visitor amenities that are needed to open the 900-acre Pismo Preserve to the public.

If local non-profit manages to secure the remaining funds needed to complete the project, the preserve could open in six to eight months, according to the Executive Director of The Land Conservancy, Kaila Dettman.

However, if the funding is not secured, The Land Conservancy will have no choice but to stop construction, Dettman says, inevitably delaying the opening of the Preserve until the funds are raised.

“We are so close to realizing this incredible project and every bit of support helps us with this final stretch of construction and funding,” Dettman said.

The non-profit is now relying on help from local businesses and community members to gather the remaining funds. If interested in seeing this project complete, you can contact The Land Conservancy office at (805) 544-9096.

Additionally, The Land Conservancy wants your input regarding the potential use of the Pismo Preserve via an online survey. The preserve is designed to accommodate hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians, so knowing when each respective group would likely be using the park would be valuable to The Land Conservancy, Dettman says.
