Highlights of the Coastal Discovery Celebration

For seven weeks, the Coastal Discovery Celebration brings coastal San Luis Obispo County vibrantly to life. During this seven-week collection of events, adventure awaits! Back by popular demand, the Visitor Center at Hearst Castle State Park will offer free weekly screenings of National Parks Adventure. Narrated by by the Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure takes audiences on the ultimate off-trail adventure into the nation’s awe-inspiring great outdoors and untamed wilderness. The film takes viewers soaring over red rock canyons, hurtling up craggy mountain peaks and into other-worldly realms found within America’s most legendary outdoor playgrounds, including Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and Arches. Celebrate the 100- year anniversary of the national parks with world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, adventure photographer Max Lowe and artist Rachel Pohl as they hike, climb and explore their way across America’s majestic parks. Other eye-opening experiences include Elephant Seal docent Educational Walks in San Simeon or kayak back in time with a peaceful ride into Point San Luis, then tour the historic Point San Luis Lighthouse. In the mood to work? Roll up your sleeves for a day of trail restoration at Montaña de Oro State Park with other folks who care. Or head to the Central Coast Aquarium for the shark and jelly fish feeding. No matter how you spend your Coastal Discovery Celebration, you’re sure to leave invigorated, informed and inspired.
