Townsend Public Affairs is proud to announce our client, The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County, recent funding achievement from the California Natural Resources Agency in the amount of $262,155 from the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Grant Program. These much needed funds will help purchase native trees and landscaping at the Octagon Barn Center that will mitigate significant air quality, noise, and traffic congestion from the major transportation improvements nearby.
Townsend Public Affairs is greatly appreciate of the outstanding work by the staff of the Conservancy, as well as the leadership and support from Assembly Member Katcho Achadjian and Senator Bill Monning. TPA assisted in writing the grant application, working with the Natural Resources Agency staff, and advocating with legislative leadership in support of the project.
The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County works cooperatively with both landowners and government agencies to restore wildlife habitat, protect cultural resources, and promote outdoor recreation. Since 1984, they have permanently conserved over 14,700 acres of land in San Luis Obispo County.
Congratulations Land Conservancy!
