Year End Stats

As our fiscal year comes to a close (that’s right, the year ends on June 30th in the nonprofit world!) we’d like to share some of the statistics on our programs. We’ve been working hard all year to preserve, protect, enhance and promote the South Coast Wilderness – and sometimes it seems like we’ve been working just as hard just to keep track of what we’ve done! We’d like to offer a big thank you to our supporters, board, staff (including our fantastic seasonal Field Instructors and Restoration Technicians), and especially our volunteers. The numbers speak for themselves – we couldn’t accomplish a fraction of what we do without such fantastic volunteer support.
