Rally for the Carrizo

  • Mission Plaza 989 Chorro Street San Luis Obispo, CA, 93401 United States (map)

Join fellow public land advocates and conservationists to celebrate the Carrizo Plain National Monument, which is currently under threat by a status review ordered by President Trump. Hear from Representative Salud Carbajal, former Congresswoman Lois Capps, San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon, and Pat Veesart, longtime resident of the Carrizo Plain, speak about the importance of the Carrizo Plain and why it deserves to remain a national monument. Violet Cavanaugh, Vice-chair of the Northern Chumash Tribal Council, will open the rally with a traditional Chumash ceremony and speak about the historic and current significance of the Carrizo Plain as a sacred site to many Native American tribes. There will also be letter-writing stations set up so you can easily lend your voice of support for the Carrizo during the public comment period that ends on July 10th. This event is free and open to the public!
