FORT BRAGG, Calif., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Some might say we have rocks in our head in Fort Bragg.
But we like to think of it as having "rocks on our mind," says local volunteer Ruth Sparks who helped the City of Fort Bragg win the designation of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "Gateway" to the California Coastal National Monument.
Here's how the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Department of the Interior describes the Monument: "Waves explode onto offshore rocks, spraying whitewater into the air. Sea lions bark as they "haul out" of the surf onto the rocks, and a whirlwind of birds fly above. These amazing rocks and small islands are part of the California Coastal National Monument, a spectacular interplay of land and sea."
Fort Bragg's rocks are alive with birds and sea lions and intertidal creates of all types. Have a look for yourself on our YouTube page.
The Stats: Located off the 1,100 miles of California coastline, the California Coastal National Monument comprises more than 20,000 small islands, rocks, exposed reefs, and pinnacles between Mexico and Oregon.
