Doesn't sound like it....courtesy of Jon Davies:
"The monument consists of more than 20,000 rocks and small islands that are spread along the entire length of the 1,100-mile California coastline, from Mexico to the Oregon border. The monument does not include any of Californiaís mainland but consists of about 1,000 acres of rocks and islands that stand above mean high tide, within a vast 14,600-square-nautical-mile segment of the Pacific Oceanís continental shelf. .... The rocks and islands of the CCNM are public lands1 owned by the United States that are administered by the Secretary of the Interior through the BLM. These lands are, or have been at one time, public domain lands as a result of California being ceded to the United States in 1848 and have been under the administration of BLM and its predecessor agency, the U.S. General Land Office."
