Supporting community-based wetland restoration initiatives
Marquez Canyon Creek
Grantee: California Wetlands Research
Total Cost: $51,300
The project will restore a perennial coastal stream filled 51 years ago as close to predisturbance conditions as possible. Plans for this phase include excavation of the stream course, on site nursery construction to grow native plants required for the restoration, and an educational program involving public school students, who will participate in plant propagation at the nursery and soil/water quality testing/monitoring as part of an environmental science curriculum given the grantee’s credentialed scientists and educators.
