Whose LA Is It Anyway? The Malibu Public Beach Access Tour

Leaders: Jenny Price, Our Malibu Beaches App and Linda Locklin, Coastal Access Program Manager, California Coastal Commission

This tour visits Ground Zero for public lands access battles in the L.A. area, in the U.S., and beyond: the Malibu beaches that are lined with private development. We’ll see the problems and also the considerable progress firsthand, as we enjoy all the public surf, illegal signage, and unmarked dry-sand easements, as well as the massive estates designed by the likes of John Lautner and Richard Meier. Plenty of walking-on-the-beach time included.

Lunch:  We’ll stop at a classic Malibu seafood shack on the coast (veggie options also available). Attendees will need to purchase their own lunch.

Bring:  sunscreen, and a couple warm layers as the beaches can be cold in spring.

Note:  If you can, please download the free Our Malibu Beaches mobile-phone app in advance .

Trip includes bus transportation. 10:00 am – approximately 7:00 pm. Meet bus outside the convention center, in the parking lot, at 9:45 a.m.
