Big Wednesday: Save Trestles 2/6

If building a for-profit private toll road through a state coastal park sticks in your craw, come out and let the California Coastal Commission know. This is THE most important hearing in regards to protecting Trestles and San Onofre State Park. Surfrider Foundation is organizing carpools and buses to bring an enormous crowd to the decision-makers for a hearing in Del Mar that will determine the future of allowable uses of open parkland, and a treasured surf break. Please help spread the word to all your family and friends in Southern California.

What: Crucial Vote to Save Trestles at California Coastal Commission

When: Wednesday, February 6th, 2008. Please arrive by 9 a.m.

Where: Wyland Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, CA 92014 - Just off the I-5 in Del Mar at Via de la Valle exit., click here for directions. Please carpool or take one of our buses if you can.

The Surfrider Foundation and partners are renting buses and organizing carpools in San Clemente and San Diego. We are also providing lunch, t-shirts, and posters/signs for all supporters.
