Planting at Los Osos Community Park
The planting project at Los Osos Community Park which was approved by the LOCAC Board at their December 15, 2022 meeting has gotten the “go ahead” from the County. We are now working to gather volunteers to help with the planting. Please let us know your preference for either Saturday January 14th or 21st beginning at 9AM to volunteer for 1 to 2 hours to work with County staff to plant. Heavy rain cancels. Pursuant to the approved plan (which can be found on the LOCAC website under the December 15, 2022 meeting), the new plantings will be on the corner of Palisades (working around the spot where the Holiday Tree goes each year) and LOVR in front of the Community Park.
If you are interested in helping with this exciting community project, please reply with your preference for either the 14th or 21st to LOCAC member John Lindt at email@example.com by Wednesday January 11th. Once we tally to preferences, we will announce the day. Thank you in advance!

Los Osos makes top 10 list for best Coastal Towns in US
USA Today named us #8 in the country.
““Los Osos, California seems to have it all,” says 10Best Local Expert Sherel Purcell. “Small sophisticated restaurants and coffee shops sit on the quiet seaside that offers the best views of the Morro Bay rock that appears to rise out of the sea to the north. A hillside golf course overlooks a sleepy bay and the beautiful Montaña De Ora State Park.”
