Long Beach wetlands restoration
The Port of Long Beach will donate $5,000 for the surgical and rehabilitative care of a California brown pelican found recently on the shoreline in Long Beach with a slashed pouch, a wound thought to be caused by someone with a knife or other sharp object.
The Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority (LCWA) brings together multiple agencies to restore the Los Cerritos Wetlands, one of the few remaining significant restoration opportunities in Southern California. The LCWA is comprised of the City of Long Beach, the City of Seal Beach, the State Coastal Conservancy and the Lower Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers and Mountains Conservancy.

A multi-agency effort to restore the Los Cerritos Wetlands, one of the last remaining wetlands in Long Beach, California began in May 2011 and will take another step forward later this week. The public is invited to join the City of Long Beach, Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority, Aquarium of the Pacific, and a team of local wetland experts to learn more about the progress of the Los Cerritos Wetlands Conceptual Restoration Plan, which will be based upon existing wetland habitats, hydrology and incorporate public access components into the final design product.
