LandWatch’s mission is to protect Monterey County’s future by addressing climate change, community health, and social inequities in housing and infrastructure.

By encouraging greater public participation in planning, we connect people to government, address human needs, and inspire conservation of natural resources.

LandWatch is committed to climate action in Monterey County. We are actively seeking ways to mitigate climate impacts and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from projects, agriculture, and transportation.

LandWatch is at the forefront of ensuring affordable housing options are available to local families—including housing that is built in walkable, bikeable, and mixed use, city-centered areas.

LandWatch follows the public process and development projects throughout Monterey County and for more than a dozen local cities to ensure climate, water, housing, public safety, and social equity issues are addressed.
