Close to 1700 acres of land near the town of Point Arena in Mendocino County will be preserved for future generations thanks to the Action of President Obama in 2014.   It is the first land-based expansion of the monument and has paved the way for additional areas to be designated. 

In late 2013, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell visited Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands for herself, hosting a public listening session on prospective conservation measures. She came away from the experience touting the administrationā€™s opportunity to ā€œcreate a world-class destination for outdoor recreation and the study of coastal resources, and to strengthen the local economies."
