About Us

The Coastal Resources Program provides science-based information to people who make and influence decisions on the sustainability of coastal communities, ecosystems and resources. In this way it serves as a link between communities of interest and the University of California to help solve problems related to coastal resources. Some of the information may include references to policies and regulations for educational purposes. Site visitors should review the original policies and check with pertinent regulatory authorities for specific information to use in making decisions. Any references to products or commercial enterprises in the online articles or publications are for educational purposes and do not constitute endorsements or recommendations by the University of California.

The program is part of the statewide, Cooperative Extension network of University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources that is sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture, State of California and participating County governments. Additional support was provided through grants, contracts, gifts and in-kind contributions from a variety of federal, state and local governmental and non-governmental sources. 

The Coastal Resources Advisor, Emerita, is Ms. Leigh Taylor Johnson. She is affiliated with the UC Cooperative Extension office in San Diego, California. Program resources are extended via this website locally, in California, the United States and internationally. This site was created in September 2010 and is updated periodically. Content includes online articles and publications created for this site as well as original and updated materials from a previous site that was created in 1998.
