The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County is working to acquire a 900 acre private ranch and turn it into public lands surrounding Pismo Beach. It's called the Pismo Preserve, and the group still needs nearly a half a million dollars to achieve the goal.

Organizers hope this Sunday's Jazz and Blues Festival at Dinosaur Caves Park will help.

"This is a great opportunity for the community to take us over the top," said Land Conservancy member Herb Candell. "We have a secret surprise announcement of a very large donor who will match the event and he will be present here and that will be exciting."

The organizers will provide a shuttle service so people can avoid traffic during the busy 4th of July weekend.


It's held in conjunction with Art in the Park.
