Supporting community-based wetland restoration initiatives
Goleta Slough Urban Interface Restoration
Grantee: Growing Solutions
This project will involve students and volunteers in the hands-on restoration of a currently unrestored 5-acre portion of Goleta Slough, providing practical educational workshops. The restoration will help reverse wetland degradation and symptoms of urban development through weed removal and revegetation, enhance the rare species plant population within the airport property, and bank wetland habitat against the possibility of future climate change induced sea- level rise.
