A living memorial

Grover BeachJune 17, 2014 

My husband, Daniel Shaffer, was born and raised in Pismo Beach. His playground growing up was the ocean, the hills and Price Canyon. He died last September at the age of 86.

When I heard about the Pismo Preserve I knew immediately that this was the memorial he would have wanted. I contacted the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County and donated $5,000 in his memory.

It gives me great comfort to know he will forever be a part of the open spaces he loved. I would encourage everyone to consider donating to the Pismo Preserve as a living memorial to a loved one.
