The Central Coast Travel Program encourages “benevolent tourism”


Highway 1 Discovery Route has launched the Stewardship Travel for Good program, which encourages travelers to the California coast to “make a difference on their vacation”.

This program includes beach clean-ups, trail restoration, museums, park tours and other sustainable activities.

“We want our visitors to feel a deeper connection to our region, so the way we do it is whether it takes a few minutes to clean up the trash while they’re here, or a number. Educate them and inspire them to do good things whether or not it is time to build a trail in Montagna de Oro. “

On Saturday, Travel For Good organized a beach clean-up at Avila Beach in collaboration with the Central Coast Aquarium. Visitors can get a beach cleaning kit and protect marine life by picking up leftover trash for hours on end. Each cleaning kit includes a collection bag, gloves and an Avila Beach Appreciation Stewardship tote bag.

The program provides these cleaning kits daily and no reservations are required. High school family members can also receive volunteer credits during the holidays.

Cleaning kits are available at Central Coast Aquarium, Avila Beach Golf Resort, Avila Lighthouse Suites, Avila Village Inn, Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort, Coastal Vacation Rental, and San Luis Bay Inn.

The Travel for Good program facilitates activities throughout the central coast.

“Last weekend, the program’s Seastar Awards from Monterey Bay National Marine Reserve highlighted a new trend in compassionate tourism that has helped Highway 1 Discovery Route create and model California. “.” said Startevant.
