Planning Design for acquisiton, site improvements and steam protection projects at Camp Bloomfield along the Arroyo Sequit.
Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority
The grant request is for funding project planning for watershed protection actions in the Arroyo Sequit Watershed related to feasibility of land
acquisition, site improvements, and stream protection projects at Camp Bloomfield. The camp has been operated by the Junior Blind of America for many years, but the organization may be contemplating a move and sale of the property. The Arroyo Sequit and some tributary drainages traverse the property, which is directly upstream from California State Parks’ Leo Carrillo State Park and beach. National Park land also abuts the Camp. The Camp property encompasses approximately 45 acres and has numerous buildings and capacity for 200 or more overnight visitors, including schoolchildren and those with sight, mobility, and other disabilities. Beyond its great potential for public use, the site does present challenges and opportunities for better water management and resource protection.
