Stewardship Travel along the CA Highway 1 Discovery Route in coastal San Luis Obispo County (SLO CAL) engages visitors in over 50 bite-size activities and contribution opportunities. Stewardship Travel adds meaning and fun while immersing visitors deeply in the natural and cultural heritage experiences that California’s unique Central Coast has to offer.

Built in 1904 the Oceano Depot was once the most important buildings in south San Luis Obispo County. All passenger, freight, telegraph, and mail service passed in and around the Depot.

The Oceano Train Depot has been restored to near original condition. Visitors can tour a real turn-of-the-century train depot that remains virtually untouched. Housed inside the walls are not only artifacts from the railroad, but historical photos and artifacts from the surrounding community dating back to the early 1900's. Railroad buffs and former workers love to tell their stories of working on the railroad and give instructions on how to use the specialized equipment. Exhibits include the old post office boxes, coffee grinders, jukebox, and railroad equipment.

Gain a deeper connection on vacation through activities and charitable donation opportunities that protect wildlife, habitat, and cultural heritage sites.
