The project will complete and integrate four nearly restored projects into one complete 10 acre restoration of coastal sage scrub, native grassland, riparian and upper salt marsh habitat. The work will involve the temporary fencing and revegetation of areas damaged by illegal trail activity, and the remediation of other areas that were unsuitable for community-based planting activities because of heavily compacted soil and other issues.
