ANNOUNCES COASTAL CONSERVANCY GRANT -
Gardens awarded a California Coastal Conservancy Grant
Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens has received a $35,500 planning grant from the California Coastal Conservancy. The grant award is for architectural design and engineering to upgrade three sections of the North and South Trails for ADA accessibility.
“We are so fortunate to have almost ½ mile of coastal bluff access and want to be able to inclusively share the trails with people of all abilities,” said Ry Southard, MCBG Executive Director. “We have 5 electric scooters that are provided at no cost to our visitors who have special needs. ADA trail improvements along the North Trail at Digger Creek, will open up access to exceptional view corridors, both up the creek and down to where it meets the ocean. We thank the Coastal Conservancy for their long standing support of the Gardens.” The Coastal Conservancy funded the original property purchases, with the first 12 acres in 1981 and the final 35 acres in 1991.
