Clean water and healthy oceans are definitely high on our list of priorities, but if we can’t get to the coastline to enjoy ocean activities, then we’ve got a major problem to solve. Limited access to the shoreline is how the organization started in 2006 and to this day it is the most important (but probably least understood) issue that we work on. What started as a simple program related to knocking down obstruction barriers has evolved into an effort that includes topics such as erosion, sea-level rise, invasive species and long term shoreline planning.
ACCESS is one of our three core programs here at COA, and our 2nd annual Paddle for Access event on August 17th, at 8 A.M. will celebrate and bring further awareness to our mission to protect and preserve shoreline access! We hope to see you there!
