The Land Conservancy is excited to announce “Discovery Days” at the Pismo Preserve!

While staff are still working through the logistics of opening this beautiful property for complete public access, we will be opening the Preserve on select days for you and your friends and family to explore the Pismo Preserve at your own pace, without a docent.

On Discovery Days, you will be able to access the Pismo Preserve via shuttle from one of 4 shuttle stops (including Pismo Beach City Hall) between Pismo Beach and Oceano.

Ride On SLO is providing the shuttle service, which will run continuously from 8 am to 6 pm on each Discovery Day. Your shuttle ride will be FREE.

Please note there is currently no public parking at the Pismo Preserve. Access is via shuttle ONLY. For your safety, walking in to the Preserve will not be permitted. Cyclists may ride in.
