Stewardship Travel Demonstrated by Local Joanie Andersen

We are so inspired by Joanie Andersen and her commitment to give back to our community! Thank you Joanie for being a Stewardship Traveler and giving back! We hope others can learn from you and from our Stewardship Travel Program! | San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Area News

Stewardship Travel Program:
Expand your knowledge and gain a deeper connection to the people, land, wildlife, heritage, and culture while on vacation through stewardship travel citizen science programs, docent led hikes and historic tours.

California Highway 1 Discovery Route’s Stewardship Travel offers opportunities to care for 10 destinations by engaging in one or more of over 70 brief experiences from Ragged Point to the Guadalupe Dunes, which enhance immersion into the natural and cultural heritage of California’s central coast. Plant seedlings in a native garden, contribute to a historic lighthouse, make new friends at a beach cleanup or become a “citizen scientist” at a nature center. Your stewardship benefits the Central Coast and adds deeper purpose to your vacation.

Learn how stewardship travel has become ecotourism’s next big step by watching interviews with local experts on a Stewardship Travel Episode of On the Road with Jo.
