CPR for the Mesa
Bolsa Chica Land Trust, a non-profit, in partnership with California Department of Fish & Wildlife, will be restoring 100 acres of the lower mesa adjacent the Bolsa Chica wetland, with native coastal grasslands. This project will take ten years to complete and will involve volunteers providing 40% of the workforce and sub-contractors, 60%. The native grassland will provide forage for raptors and relieve their predation on endangered least terns in the wetlands. For the past 22 years the Bolsa Chica Land Trust has been active in the acquisition and restoration of the mesa to help support the greater Bolsa Chica wetlands; they believe a healthy wetland needs healthy uplands.
