Stewardship Travel along the CA Highway 1 Discovery Route in coastal San Luis Obispo County (SLO CAL) engages visitors in over 50 bite-size activities and contribution opportunities. Stewardship Travel adds meaning and fun while immersing visitors deeply in the natural and cultural heritage experiences that California’s unique Central Coast has to offer.

The Point San Luis Lighthouse was purchased from the Federal Government by the Port San Luis Harbor District in 1992. In 1995, the Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers non-profit was formed, made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who would go on to to restore the historic site. Currently the Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers continue to run the historic site, overseeing the maintenance and fundraising efforts which go towards the restoration and operation of the Lighthouse. Tours, events, and other efforts allow the non-profit to keep the historic site in good condition.
