Why No Posts on this since 12/2008?

Due to the State’s budget crisis, virtually no land was purchased by the Coastal Conservancy in 2009 and early 2010.
There were no land purchases at the 2/4/10, 12/3/09. 10/29/09, 6/4/09, 4/2/09, or 2/26/09 meetings

Here are the two that occurred in 2009:

Meeting date: Thursday, September 24, 2009
