Rasa Gustaitis, editor of the former Coast & Ocean magazine, provided invaluable suggestions as to these pages' content. We give very special thanks those who wrote articles or provided photographs. Very special thanks go to Dale Cook, who maintain this site, and gives us "the very special-client" treatment. The site is hosted by Westhost.

The Genesis of This Project
A grant from the California Coastal Conservancy supported Coastwalk's 20012003 efforts as a part of the Working Group, a committee formed by members of several State agencies and Coastwalk, to prepare an inventory map of the CCT. A Conservancy grant as well now supports some of Coastwalk's largely volunteer-driven projects, including continuing development of this website and the project to map the entire CCT. Coastwalk also wishes to thank the other members of the Working Group for their help and encouragement in carrying out the project.

**We mourn the loss of Chuck Mead. He was a good friend and instrumental in
getting the Los Angeles County mapping effort underway. He will be missed
by us all--the effort he gave will continue to be greatly appreciated.**
