wetland scene

The project will expand the community-based restoration efforts at Los Cerritos Wetlands to the newly purchased Hellman Ranch Lowlands, while restoring the plant community in 6 acres of alkali meadow in the Zedler Marsh restoration area. This work will be incorporated into a public program focused on wetlands education, community outreach, stewardship and conservation for the continued and long-term preservation and enhancement of the Los Cerritos Wetlands. The project will install coastal wetlands vegetation, control non-native plant species, remove thousands of pounds of debris, conserve rare plant populations, propagate wetlands plant species, and introduce non-traditional environmental constituents to these urban wetlands.
