Poseidon company wants to pull a permit with the California Coastal Commission to allow them to build a Desalination Plant. Come to this event to show opposition to this company getting a permit. There are all kinds of different technology used to desalinate water and the one used by Poseidon is very low tech and not kind to the environment. To visit a natural area in our region that uses only rain water, hike the trails at Crystal Cove state beach park on the east side of PCH. On the beach side you will also see lots of native flora and fauna.
