Bruce’s Beach here in Manhattan Beach was seized in 1924 from the Bruce Family after they, and other Black families in the area, endured endless harassment and violence.

Returning this property today to the descendants of the Bruce family is not only significant for them, but for addressing long standing systemic racism, righting historic wrongs, and working toward a more equitable and inclusive future for all.

To restore California’s ecosystems, we must adopt smarter permitting

As the impacts of climate change are felt throughout CA, #CuttingGreenTape can help regulatory agencies collaborate and reduce the time it takes to issue permits for much-needed restoration projects. https://calmatters.org/commentary/2021/08/to-restore-californias-ecosystems-we-must-adopt-smarter-permitting/

The very regulations that were intended to slow or prevent environmental degradation are now hindering work to expand ecosystem restoration. Successful smarter permitting efforts typically achieve better outcomes in restoring our water, lands, shores, fisheries and wildlife.

So many kids and disabled veterans enjoy our deep sea fishing programs, thanks to our State Coastal Conservancy and nonprofit fishing clubs and their dedicated volunteers. Thanks SCC and all involved.
Thanks again to our State Coastal Conservancy for helping us with our kids and disabled veterans fishing program and beach clean ups. Thanks also to NOAA, Heal the Bay, Gnarly Beach Cleaner, MDRA and LARRC. It took a village and together we introduced a bunch of kids and vets to deep sea fishing, cleaned some beaches and created a cadre of more intelligent and responsible ocean stewards. Hopefully, this is just the beginning. Big thanks also to Evyan Sloane at SCC, all my NOAA friends, all the volunteers at LARRC and MDRA and all the kids and veterans for sharing your time with us.
Master’s Program in Conservation and Restoration at UC-Irvine is accepting our last round of applications for Fall 2018! The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the Center for Environmental Biology (CEB) at the University of California, Irvine are accepting applications for the Masters in Conservation and Restoration Science (MCRS) graduate program providing training for students interested in careers in the research and management of natural resources. Is accepting applications for the second cohort of MCRS students for Fall 2018! Sectors and potential careers for MCRS graduates include: non-profit land management sector, local and federal government agencies, and environmental consulting firms. For more information, visit the MCRS webpage (http://mcrs.bio.uci.edu), or contact program administrators at [email protected]. The MCRS degree will provide students with the academic and professional skills needed to study, protect, and conserve natural resources, and to hold leadership and management positions in environmental fields related to conservation, restoration, and sustainability. Potential applicants will need a B.A. or B.S. degree, preferably in the natural sciences (biology, conservation biology, ecology, environmental science, forestry, wildlife biology, horticulture, or similar degree title) from a fully accredited academic institution. Applicants with undergraduate degrees in other areas will be considered, but must demonstrate proficiency in the natural sciences and/or practical experience working in this professional field. The program includes two years of coursework and activities, including 18 units of core courses (e.g., ecology, conservation science), 16 units of topical electives (e.g., environmental policy, land use policy), 18 units of technical and professional skills courses (e.g., technical writing, GIS), and 8 units associated with technical and professional workshops (e.g., regional professional gatherings). A collaborative, year-long group capstone project (12 units), aligned with community partners, integrates the program’s learning objectives and applies student’s new skills to key environmental challenges facing society. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The last round of applications will be reviewed for admission after July 1, 2018.
