Hogue Action Pistol Range
The local pistol range, frequented by gun enthusiasts, law enforcement personnel, and individuals interested in self-defense, is situated along a desolate section of the 101 between Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Lionel noticed the site because of its denuded embankments, and because it is particularly exposed to the elements, he believed that trees could serve to protect against erosion, provide windbreaks and shade and cool the area. In the fall of 2007, with permission of the rangemaster, he and Chrissy planted more than a dozen cypress, oak, and box elder along the embankments. One Cool Earth plans to return in the future and continue planting.
