The Elkhorn Slough Foundation, with community volunteers, is restoring a half acre of sand dune and marsh habitat at Moss Landing State Park, as well as engaging community partners and school groups in the restoration efforts. At organized workdays, volunteers and local students will restore habitat by removing weeds, collecting seeds, and planting an anticpated 600 plants at the park.
"Moss Landing State Beach is perhaps the most visited public park in the Elkhorn Slough Watershed, providing Californians with a special opportunity to experience the Elkhorn Slough. Visitors can view sea otters, seals, birds and other marine wildlife while recreating amongst some of California's rarest habitats. The Elkhorn Slough Foundation is pleased to partner with California State Parks and California State Parks Foundation to ensure that visitors have high-quality access that the habitats and wildlife are healthy, and that underserved local youth are able to experience their local gems."
