Thanks to you, Crystal Cove’s numbers have never been better. Our marine conservation area, backcountry and miles of pristine coastline remain intact and continue to thrive under the watchful eye of The Conservancy and our partner, California State Parks.
Our expansive outdoor classroom saw a record number of students who participated in our educational programs, with the largest ever percentage of scholarship funding going to underserved schools. On behalf of each student who visited the Cove last year, thank you for providing an inspirational learning experience that simply would not have been possible without your financial support.
The infrastructure phase of restoring the 17 remaining cottages along the North Beach is well under way and expected to be completed in June 2020. Significant funding is still needed to complete the second and final phase – the historic restoration of the cottages – but once this goal of fully restoring the Historic District Cottages is achieved, the number of overnight low-cost accommodations for rental by the public will double and funds to support our educational programs will more than quadruple.
These numbers simply would not be possible without you, and we hope we can count on you again this year to consider making a year end gift to ensure that we have the resources necessary to make next year’s numbers even better.
Thank you for your continued support and friendship.
