Our Mission

The mission of Citizens for East Shore Parks (CESP) is to create a necklace of shoreline parks from the Oakland Estuary to the Carquinez Strait.

CESP works to conserve natural resources and wildlife habitat and to secure public access to shoreline open space along our magnificent East Bay shoreline.

Our Resilient Shoreline Program addressing sea rise and the effects of climate change is a natural extension of our mission.
