The Go Wetlands project restored 1.72 (gross) 0.86 (net) acres of coastal sage scrub habitat with native plants and installed a rope-based trail access restriction fence. Local schools were involved in the program to adopt a plot in restoration areas; students were instructed in the process, grew some plants to be used in the restoration process, and helped to install and maintain the planted material.
