Planning and Conservation League
Since 1965, PCL has changed the landscape of California through the sponsorship of bond measures that have preserved hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness, miles and miles of sandy beaches, and many square miles of habitat for endangered wildlife.
We sponsor and support legislation that protects our sparkling coastline and flowing rivers. We work for strengthened land use planning laws to promote and protect open space, habitat, and healthy communities.
We invite you to join our many partners in our mission to protect and restore California’s natural environment, and to promote and defend the public health and safety of the people of California, through legislative action.
